Child-focussed work may involve talking, play-based work, drawing, craft and other child-friendly therapeutic activities. With young children, parents are encouraged to be involved in sessions and play based activities may be used in order to increase the child’s awareness and to teach coping strategies.

We assist children who have experienced:

  • Problems with transition to school
  • School avoidance
  • Learning difficulties
  • Poor peer relationships
  • Low self esteem
  • Problems with behaviour
  • Family relationships
  • Physical or sexual abuse

The initial consultation is with parents/guardians only, to enable a candid, open conversation about your concerns and hopes, and you can ask questions about the assessment and therapeutic process. Assessment usually involves a mix of sessions with the parent/carer and child, both together and separately.

Parent feedback sessions provide an opportunity for parents/carers to discuss concerns and for the psychologists to develop an intervention tailored to your child’s needs. Sometimes, parents are involved throughout treatment in the role of co-therapist, to allow for ongoing implementation of recommended strategies alongside and following the completion of treatment.Contact Looking Glass Psychology via email to to arrange a time for a free 15 minute telephone consultation to discuss your child’s needs.
