It seems that not a day goes by without hearing or reading about the increasing issue of children's emotional and mental wellbeing. It is a positive step that this is being recognised by schools and medical practitioners. Often, it can be helpful to seek help without being put on a waiting list and we can offer appointments on Saturdays, avoiding the need to miss school. A free initial consultation is also available, which often helps to allay any potential worries that your child may have about the therapeutic process.
