You and your child will meet with our child psychologist who will ask you questions about your child’s current difficulties, but also about your child’s background, school, friends and other aspects of their life. It is important to find out as much as possible about your child to know how the problem may have developed, what factors affect it, and what impact it has on everyday life.

You and your child (if they are old enough) may be asked to complete questionnaires about the problem to provide more information. Standardised questionnaires on topics such as social functioning, anxiety, and depression can be very helpful to the psychologist in formulating or diagnosing, as well in identifying the best treatment plan.
