When to send your child to a psychiatrist

It can be confusing to know when your child may need to see a psychiatrist. Common reasons to book an appointment can range from behavioural symptoms, such as problems at school, or socially, to more internalising symptoms, including anxiety, low mood, and esteem.

Your psychiatrist will be able to understand if these behaviours are developmentally appropriate, or if something else is going on. As brain and mind experts, your child is in the right hands with us.

Extensive assessment & bespoke treatment

An initial appointment typically lasts over 2 hours, and the psychiatrist will delve into all aspects of your child’s behaviour. Once a diagnosis has been reached, treatment pathways are discussed to find the best way forward.

There are a variety of tools that can be used, including one-to-one sessions, family therapy, and medication, if appropriate, depending on the diagnosis and preferences of patients and their families.

We recognise that no two individuals are the same. That’s why our treatment plans are bespoke and tailored to your child’s needs. With access to a multi-disciplinary team of experts, we ensure that you can access specialist support from other mental health experts if your treatment plan recommends this.

How to get an appointment with us

The first step to arranging an appointment at our clinic is to contact our team of patient coordinators.

If you are a private patient, you’ll need to provide a referral letter from your GP or another healthcare professional. That way we can make sure that you see a psychiatrist with the relevant expertise.
