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

Vivian Greene




Sometimes life is tough. Sometimes we face challenges on our journey. Sometimes we need somewhere to go to talk about the difficulties, or help with sorting things out. Talking to an experienced, knowledgeable Clinical Psychologist can help.


We offer therapy for children and young people, parents and families.

We use a variety of models including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and compassion focused therapy (CFT).

We offer support to parents struggling to manage behaviour and to young people managing anxiety and low mood.

We are a small practice of experienced, caring, thoughtful Chartered Clinical Psychologists. We have more than 25 years experience working with children and families.


Clinical Psychologists are trained to doctoral level. We know our theories, lots about feelings and a bunch of strategies. But more than that, we focus on the quality of relationships we build with young people and families.


Getting young people on board and feeling like they have some control over their feelings and their lives is key to helping them develop strategies to deal with the challenges they face.

January 2021 – we’re thinking of you all throughout this 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.
