We accept referrals from GPs, schools, health visitors and all agencies involved with young people and their families.
Outside of working hours you can leave a message on our answerphone. We aim to respond to all messages the next working day.
We talk to you and your family to find out about you and how we can help. We may provide individual support which could include play based or talking therapies. If you need medication we can help support your concerns. We also offer therapeutic support for families.We aim to be accessible, often seeing you at home or school, unless our clinic is more appropriate. We allow plenty of time for children and young people who may find it difficult to engage with others. We are committed to being focused on children and young people.

We work closely with you and your family, often providing therapeutic support for families. We support families and carers by providing information and education and by helping them to cope with the challenges to family life which can be a consequence of disability. We also help families to establish their own strategies.
We work closely with other services to ensure that families receive a quality specialist service that respects individual needs, promotes recovery and social inclusion.
