Psycho-Emotional Assessment

The psycho-emotional assessment is undertaken by a team of child & adolescent psychotherapists, and family & systemic therapists.

The role of the child & adolescent psychotherapist is to undertake a qualitative assessment of the patient’s state of mind.

How do I get in touch?

If you are concerned about your child’s behaviour and development and would like them to be seen by a specialist, please contact the Practice either by telephone or through the general ‘make an enquiry’ form to arrange a consultation with one of our paediatricians.

What can I get help with?

When you make an enquiry on behalf of your child, you will be asked to provide some basic information on them, and what they are struggling with. You will then be invited to a telephone consultation which will help our clinicians decide on the best course of action.
