Susanna Baker – Clinical Psychology for Children, Young People and Families
There can be occasions in children’s and young people’s lives when difficulties arise and it can be helpful to speak to someone with an objective view. If the problems are hard to make sense of, affect how a child or young person feels about themselves, how they get on within their family or with their friends or start to have an impact on everyday life, then a child clinical psychologist may be able to help.
A clinical psychology approach may be suitable for understanding and addressing a wide range of emotional, behavioural and developmental problems. Below are just a few examples of the types of difficulties that children, young people and their families face for which clinical psychology may be helpful:
- Low mood, worries and anxiety, including phobias and obsessional-compulsive disorder
- Concerns about low self-esteem and lack of confidence
- Difficulties with friendships and other relationships
- Adjustment to life events such as family changes
- Interpersonal emotional problems such as anger management
- Concerns about psychological problems which are linked with physical illness
- Adjustment to bereavement and loss
- Management of children’s behavioural difficulties
- Concerns about sleeping, eating, toilet-training and general development
- Coping with teenage behaviour
- Parental stress!
My approach is collaborative, flexible and child-centred – whatever suits each child, young person and family best!
