Professional, timely and non-judgemental: Our offer to Children, Adolescents and Young People is  everything we stand for

CAYP Psychology Logo

We specialise in effective, evidence-based and professional psychological work approved by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), and regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). We will only ever provide support if we believe that we are best placed to do so.

Clinical psychologists specialise in a variety of therapeutic approaches, and all can be used depending on expertise, training and professional interests. We tend to prioritise Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Meta-Cognitive Therapy (MCT), Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), narrative therapies, family therapies, systemic and integrative therapies, and neuropsychological work.

We work collaboratively with Children, Adolescents and Young People experiencing a wide range of mental health, social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

We offer support via Teams Video Conferencing

After the Coronavirus outbreak in March 2020, we set up specialist facilities and software to be able to speak with you and your family, from the comfort of your own home, from anywhere in the UK.

If you’re not ready for face-to-face appointments, or even if you can’t make it to one of our clinics, our online appointments work in the same way as they would in a face-to-face setting. We can send you information and documents instantly, and you can access the conversations from a mobile, tablet or desktop device. We even have clinical psychologists who have expertise in online and virtual therapies.
