Specialist Psychology Services
For Children,Teenagers and
I use a range of assessment and therapeutic approaches to help children, teens and young adults to understand and address their difficulties.
These difficulties include:
- anxiety and excessive worry
- difficulties managing emotions including anger outbursts and low mood
- avoidance or phobias of particular situations or things
- obsessive or compulsive behaviours (constantly thinking about something or needing to do the same thing over and over again)
- relationship including attachment difficulties
- difficulties recovering from traumatic or scary events.
I tailor support and psychological intervention plans to meet the specific needs of each young person I work with. Depending on the age and needs of your child, sessions can be held on an individual bases or jointly with a parent.
I believe you are a key factor in the support system for your children, irrespective of their age. Working alongside you as well as your child is always considered as a potential part of any psychological support plan I develop with you as a family.
As part of a support plan, psychological knowledge can enable you to build on your understanding of your child's behavioural, emotional or mental health concerns. I will also be able to share strategies and actions that you can use at home to help your child.

I am Beck, a Mum and a Clinical Psychologist. As a Mum, I know how it feels to be worried or concerned about your child's well-being. You want to understand and address the concern to make things better for them and your family right now, not at sometime in the future.
As part of my specialist psychology service, I offer a free phone call, face to face appointments in Stourbridge, West Midlands (Covid-19 risk assessed) or online via zoom. These can be booked in my diary today via this website. The initial contact will be the start of us working together to make a positive difference for your child and family. Together we will work to understand and overcome any behavioural, emotional or mental health difficulties to restore well-being and family life.

"Beck went above and beyond to build a relationship with my child. She quickly learned how to read her and the sessions were built around my daughters individual needs. Highly recommend."

"I felt that my son was listened to, Beck was always calm and reassuring to us both and my son had techniques that he continues to use. We feel that if any other issues arise we can contact her again and that is a real comfort for a parent. Thank you so much for helping my son."
