    PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT AND THERAPY

    Birchtree Psychology offers psychological assessment, consultation and therapy for 

    CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS

    • Emotional difficulties such as anxiety/worry, low mood/depression, anger

    • Low self-esteem or confidence

    • Fears and phobias

    • Exam stress

    • Obsessive compulsive disorder

    • Coping with a physical health condition

    • Adjustment and support when a child or young person has additional needs (for example, neuro-developmental difficulties or a medical condition)

    • Difficulties with sleeping, feeding and toileting

    • Behavioural difficulties, such as disruptive/oppositional behaviour

    • Bereavement, loss and grief

    FAMILIES

    • Relationship difficulties within the family

    • Parenting concerns or dilemmas

    • Divorce/separation

    ​At intake, a thorough assessment is offered over two appointments. This includes an in-depth clinical interview covering developmental, social, medical, school and family history. Recommendations are then made for a time-limited,

    evidence-based psychological intervention.

    Psychological interventions for children and families include child-centered or systemic Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Trauma-focused CBT, Systemic/Family work, and support and guidance for parents. Depending on the assessment, one-to-one or family sessions may be recommended. Often the intervention involves a combination of both.

    Therapeutic approaches for adolescents include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Trauma-focused CBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Young People, Mindfulness and Motivational interviewing.
