“Life isn’t always about waiting for the storm to pass. Sometimes it is about learning to dance in the rain”                                  Vivian Greene

Life sometimes throws up challenges for children, young people and parents, and sometimes we need somewhere to go to think about the difficulties, or some help with sorting things out.

We are a small practice of experienced, caring, thoughtful Chartered Clinical Psychologists. Ellie, who set up Headspace Guildford has almost 25 years experience of working with children and families. Together, we offer a space to think about any difficulties,  and provide assessment, therapy and a place for people to come and talk about the things which are troubling them. We see children, young people, parents and families and offer help with a wide range of difficulties. We are qualified to work in a number of models, including the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) model which is helpful for anxiety and low mood, or to use narrative, systemic and family work (which can be helpful for anger, behaviour difficulties and a variety of other concerns) as well as other therapeutic modalities and have additional and specialist expertise in perinatal work, trauma, neurodevelopmental difficulties and Paediatric work (children and young people with a health-related condition).

If you think we could be of help please do contact us on drellie@headspaceguildford.co.uk and we can discuss any difficulties your family are facing.

Nov 2020 – we’re thinking of you all as we re-enter lockdown. Please do get in touch if we can help your child, young person or family manage the challenges this pandemic is presenting us with, or struggles unrelated to C-19. If you need support, please do continue to contact us as normal and take care as we navigate this next part of our journey.

Best wishes Ellie, Gabby, Holly & Anna.
