Adélie Psychology provide assessments and interventions to children, young people and their families where there are concerns about the emotional wellbeing/mental health/behaviour of a child/young person.
We work with children and young people regardless of their age, intellectual ability, or who they live with. We are able to adapt interventions for children and young people with a learning disability and/or autism/traits of autism. We can work with parents and families to help when things have got stuck and it feels difficult to have positive interactions. We have experience of working with the following:
Attachment difficulties and disorders in birth and foster families where there has been developmental trauma. Adélie Psychology Ltd can be commissioned by Local Authorities and Regional Adoption Agencies to work with adoptive families and children. We are an approved provider for Adoption Central England (ACE).
We can work with parents to help with the adjustment to a diagnosis of a disability (physical or intellectual) or illness, worries about bonding, and adjusting to becoming a parent.
We work with parents and carers of young children where there are concerns regarding feeding, toileting, sleeping, behaviour, and separation anxiety.
Children & Young People
We work with children and young people who struggle with experiencing anxiety, panic attacks, fears and phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), low self-esteem/self-acceptance, low mood/depression, and anger.
We tailor sessions and therapy to each child, young person, and family we work with. We will work together to identify where you would like things to be different and make a plan together to move towards that.
As regulated professionals we are trained and experienced in using a variety of well researched and evidence-based interventions.
Early Intervention & Prevention
Intervening early is often the best course of action, even if it’s just to put your mind at rest. Sometimes just having one or two sessions with a Clinical Psychologist can be enough to make changes.
