Schools and Tuition for Dyslexic Children
Working across the UK, The Family Psychologist understand that parents need honest, open answers when making decisions about what is right for their family; which is precisely what they aim to provide.
After many years working within both the health and education sectors, The Family Psychologist's lead clinical psychologist, Dr Rachel Johnson, set out to offer a wide range of services to support the behavioural, emotional and social development of children, from birth through to sixth form and the workplace.

These include:
