Child Psychology Services

Our psychologists and psychotherapists can provide emotional support to children and families to address a range of issues including anxiety, low mood, self- esteem, social skills, school issues such as bullying or school refusal, ADHD and ASD (autistic spectrum disorders), self- harm or intervention for trauma or phobias.

Our HCPC/BACP registered therapists have specialist skills in communicating with children, young people and teenagers using play, art, music and laughter. It is not all talking! Many children comment on how much they have enjoyed their appointments with us and value the opportunity to have their feelings heard and respected in a safe space.

Our highly trained team have further training in therapies such as EMDR for children, play therapy, art therapy, DBT for adolescents and CBT/CBT for trauma to name a few.

We offer a comprehensive range of specialist assessments including those for ASF work with adopted families, multidisciplinary Autism assessments (ASD) and ADHD assessments.

We place the whole family at the heart of our work and aim to include and involve parents as much as we can whilst respecting the child or young person’s need for privacy and confidentiality.

Our family work will aim to support you to have conversations which may feel hard or difficult at times. We aim to improve communication, build trust and heal and repair relationships if needed.

With young children (0-5) we offer parenting advice and support and specific support in parenting children with additional needs such as ADHD/ASD/learning difficulties.  We offer positive behaviour support packages which are aimed at parents of children with ASD/challenging behaviour. We support you to understand your child’s behaviour and produce a bespoke tailor made plan to reduce challenging behaviour and support you if those challenges do happen to ensure safe management. Please contact us for costs and further details.

Dr Louise Earley and colleagues have specific training in DDP therapy for attachment difficulties and Theraplay. Louise having trained with Daniel Hughes. Cura also works with families on the brink of care to support them to remain at home as we are able to offer work to both parents and children where appropriate.


Cura can help to point you in the right direction, helping you as parents to liaise confidently with your child’s school to ensure they get the help and support they need. Cura carry out assessments firstly discussing your child with their teachers. Observations at school can be helpful to assess how your child relates to others and approaches their learning.

The final step is cognitive testing, this involves a series of games and puzzles called a WISC which give a detailed insight into areas including memory, attention and concentration and comprehension. This will help to assess your child’s strengths and weaknesses. A straight forward written report will then be provided to you and your child’s school. This can include recommendations for learning and further help and is likely to be a key document in the preparation of a statement. Please see our costs page for details on pricing.


Dr Earley is currently the lead expert on a new government campaign which aims to help parents support their young person navigate the tricky issues of growing up.
