Welcome to Educational Psychologists

Alison and Ruth are experienced, registered educational psychologists. They offer assessment services for anyone (child to adult), who has concerns or difficulties with their learning, development, friendships and social relationships, or their feelings, moods or behaviour.

Getting to know you and your child, or teen, is important. Ruth and Alison spend a total of four hours with you and your child and will ask for a range of additional information and comment from others at home or school. They may also ask for additional tests such as hearing tests. All these pieces of information and observations are then combined to build as full a picture possible of what is happening for you and your child, before they make any recommendations as to the most suitable course of action for you, the school or university, workplace and family. Their aim is to provide you with a plan that gives you answers, direction and support to be able to move forward independently, confident that in understanding what is going on, you have enough skills, knowledge, and support to take it from there.
