Mental health problems affect about 1 in 10 children. We provide expert intervention when it matters most.
Developmental and mental health problems affect learning and can make life difficult at school and at home. Our multi-disciplinary team of specialists in child and adolescent mental health includes consultant psychiatrists, neurologists, behavioural, educational and clinical psychologists.
The breadth of our expertise means that we can offer a variety of assessment methods that are both structured and semi-structured. For example, when Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are suspected, we offer a comprehensive diagnostic and treatment package.
Our specialist team offers bespoke treatment plan, tailored to your child’s needs. We also facilitate the first evidence-based psychoeducation programme to better understand and deal with ADHD symptoms and its functional impairment
Early Start Denver Model
We are proud to be the first clinic to launch the Early Start Denver Model in the UK.

Delivered by therapists and parents at home, in the clinic and in group settings.
