Specialists in Psychological Assessment and Treatment

KindleKids is a child psychology service run by an experienced highly specialist Chartered Clinical Child Psychologist and specialist team. We work together with parents (and schools where appropriate) to assess, understand, support and provide strategies for managing a range of difficulties and concerns.

We offer:

  • Educational / Psychological Assessment
  • Therapeutic support to children and teenagers
  • Parenting support
  • Consultation to schools

We can help with a range of emotional, behavioural, social and learning issues that may be contributing to a child or teenager feeling unhappy, lacking in confidence or feeling out of control. Following psychological assessment, the child psychologist works with parents so that individual treatment plans can be developed to support them and their families in understanding and addressing their difficulties while at the same time acknowledging and nurturing their relative strengths, in order to help them to reach their potential.

Please see our website for parenting tips and more information about who we are, how we can help and what we offer.

You are also welcome to call us for a free telephone consultation to see how we can help prior to booking an appointment.

Counselling for kids Share

NLP, CBT, Hypnotherapy & counselling therapists for children & teens

At NLP4Kids we help children and their families overcome a vast range of problems. Typically these fall into the mild mental health and wellbeing areas such as anxiety, confidence issues, habits and phobias though we can help with more serious problems such as self harming, eating disorders and learning difficulties too.

Our practitioners are all DBS checked, insured and have undertaken first aid and safeguarding training. They work in schools and in the community delivering sessions one to one with young people and in workshops too. In addition, our practitioners attend retraining and have access to ongoing professional development.

Whilst we are not counsellors or psychotherapists, our work can be similar to these methodologies. NLP (neuro linguistic programming) has some similarity to CBT too, but tends to work on a more emotional (rather than just cognitive) level.

There are many different elements to NLP. Some of it works with our internal thinking and the quality of those thoughts. Other aspects of NLP focus on communication, managing emotions and developing better responses to challenging situations.

Many of our practitioners have trained in additional therapies, such as hypnotherapy.

As well as working with children and teenagers, we also work with parents and teachers or others who have influence and intervention with young people. This could be via workshops or in one to one coaching sessions.

Whether you are struggling to support a stressed out child or are finding it a challenge to engage your teenager in conversation, our practitioners are here to support you and your family. We always make sure that we create a good “fit” between the practitioner and the child and our free consultation sessions go a long way to ensure you find someone who will help you to achieve rapid lasting change.

Helping children with emotional & behaviour problems

Many children don’t want to, or cannot, talk about their problems. Play therapy is very effective for children aged 3 to 12. The child chooses from a range of activities in the play room. These include: drawing and painting, sand tray, clay, puppets, musical instruments, story-telling, role play. The Play Therapist focuses closely on the child, communicating using the media the child has chosen. Although of course, the child can talk about their problems, when they are ready, on average research shows only 8% of the session is spent in talking.

Between 73% and 84% receiving play therapy to Play Therapy UK’s standards show a positive change – the more severe the problems the higher the change. (Based on over 10,000 cases).

Because play therapy works through unconscious processes, it is important that practitioners are fully qualified and meet the highest standards of practice. Play Therapy is now regulated through the Professional Standards Authority’s Accredited Register programme. The PTUK Register of Play and Creative Arts Therapists warrants the quality and effectiveness of its Registrants. Using unregistered therapists can be dangerous.

Play therapy improves a child’s ability to learn and reduces the chance of adult mental health problems.
