How can we help you...

Educational Psychology Service

Using psychology to improve wellbeing, support life-long learning and empower children and young people to achieve their potential.




What is an Educational Psychologist?

Every school has an Educational psychologist who visits on a regular basis and works together with others to help children and young people to achieve their full potential. We support children and young people from the age of 0-24 where there are potential barriers to learning and to promote their wider wellbeing.


How can an Educational Psychologist help?

We can help in a variety of ways, for example:

  • Assessing additional support needs and barriers to learning;
  • Supporting social skills and peer relationships;
  • Recommending strategies to manage anxiety and other emotions;
  • Supporting schools and families to understand behaviour and implement appropriate strategies;
  • Providing training and signposting to other services and resources.
