How We Can Help

At each of our clinics, we have a team of Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Nurses and Occupational Therapists who specialise in working with children & adolescents, providing help for young people and their families.

*Please note, there is geographical variance in services offered.

What To Expect

The first appointment will usually comprise of some form of assessment. The clinician may request to use part of the session to meet with the parent/carer on their own. If appropriate, the Psychologist may also request to meet with the child alone for part of the session. In the case of very young children, it may not be appropriate for the child to attend the first appointment- please ask if you are unsure. Assessments vary in nature but may comprise of discussions, creative or play-based assessment with the child, questionnaires or tests. Our clinicians are highly trained and experienced in working with children and families and will ensure that all clients, whatever age, feel comfortable and at ease. Child-focused therapy sessions often comprise a mixture of talking and creative techniques. Parenting sessions usually comprise a combination of talking about the difficulties and reviewing new concepts and ideas.

The Psychologist at Purple House suggested various interventions for our son which were implemented at home and at school. Following these changes, there has been a miraculous turnaround in his well-being. I can’t thank Purple House enough – our lives have been transformed!

Parent of young child

The Psychologist at Purple House was amazing. I felt safe with her from the very first session. She was supportive and professional and with her help I have been able to begin the journey back to truly living my life. She has changed my life in a very real way and I’m so proud of myself for making it as far as I did with her help. Thank you!
