The following treatments are offered:

  • Psychoeducation: understanding your child’s difficulties is a key first step to a successful treatment outcome.
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): this therapy may be particularly useful for children (typically over 10 years) with anxiety and mood problems.
  • Medication: medication treatment is very effective in ADHD that is significantly impairing a child’s life. Medication is also considered when children have persistent and very high levels of anxiety or mood disorders such as depression which has not responded to therapeutic input.
  • Parenting Support: parents who are struggling to manage their child’s behaviour frequently find it very useful to learn strategies to increase their confidence in how they are managing their child.
  • Supportive Therapy: many children find it very helpful to have the chance to communicate their difficulties in a therapeutic environment. Depending on the age and the particular interests of the child, play, art and music can be used to enhance and augment the therapeutic process.
  • Behavioural Interventions: helping a child to change behaviour is often a key component of successful outcomes. For children under 12, parental input is essential to any behaviour modification programme.
  • Educational Supports: Standard School Letters can be provided.
