Childhood can be a difficult time for some. Like adults, a great number of common psychological difficulties can be experienced by children, adolescents and young people. This may be attributable to changes in family dynamics such as divorce or separation, the consequences of bullying or other difficulties in education. Each child and their circumstances are unique and this is borne in mind at all times when we see children and young people at Psychology Sussex.
We also have practitioners who are specialised and experienced in working with Looked After Children, adopted children and children in care. You may also want to look further into some of our specialist areas such as trauma, Neurodevelopmental difficulties, learning difficulties or educational psychology. We are also used to providing brief and tailored interventions to children and young people who are experiencing exam stress. Most of our child and adolescent psychologists are also used to dealing with complex family dynamics which may be contributing to psychological and emotional distress in children and young people. These practitioners have also undertaken work for the family courts (see information on our medicolegal services for more information).
It may be that you are looking for help on how to support your child through a turbulent period or for either ongoing support as a parent or just a one-off consultation for advice on a particular difficulty.
