Child Psychologist & Child Therapy in London

Children are nothing short of an enigma at the best of times, and this is entirely normal. However, there may come a time when you feel that your child would benefit from the input of an experienced child psychologist.

Whilst it’s easy to believe that because children don’t have the same issues we have as adults, their concerns, worries and mental health issues are any less trivial than that of an adult. We must remember that a child, much like an adult, can’t just ‘grow out’ of psychological issues.

Private Therapy Clinic has a highly specialised child and family service devoted to meeting your needs when it comes to giving your child and family the very best chances. We have spent years listened to feedback from clients who have told us what they really need from a child and family therapy service (flexibility, highly experienced therapist and measurable results) and we have tailored our services accordingly. Our continuous service development has lead to our Child Psychologists being able to get the very best results when it comes to helping children develop and grow emotionally. We aim to increase your child’s happiness leading to higher satisfaction for you within your family life.

Which Children May Benefit from Child Psychology?

Every case is different but often children who can benefit from our input are:

  • Those experiencing behavioural or emotional issues
  • Children with developmental issues
  • Children with learning difficulties
  • Children with mental health issues such as autism or ADHD
  • Children with depression and anxiety disorders such as OCD, trauma or social anxiety.
  • Children who aren’t responding well to a particular type of parenting approach – we can help by providing you with effective parenting strategies to help children with problematic behaviours.
  • Children with Dyslexia

Children Psychology Treatment

There are a range of treatments available that are effective, all of which are designed to promote positive change consistent with the goals you have for your child. The focus of a child psychologist is of course on the child, but we value the importance of useful, actionable feedback to parents who will naturally be inquisitive of any findings. Some of the techniques our therapist use when working with children are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for children, Play therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation reprocessing, Psychodynamic approaches and Mindfulness, however no one approach fits all and the type of therapy is tailored around the individual needs of your child.

How can I book a Child Psychologist in London?

We have a number of Child Psychologists and Psychotherapists at our clinics in London for you to choose from or get in touch and our lead Psychologist will speak to you over the phone and can recommend the most suitable practitioner for your child’s needs.

If you would like to talk to someone about booking an appointment with a child psychologist or psychotherapist, please get in touch with us at the Private Therapy Clinic by telephone at: +4402038820684  or book online to book an appointment.
