Psychology service

Our psychology service is for Stockport children and young people in partnership with parents, carers, and professionals.

The service applies psychological theory and practice to enhance the learning, development and wellbeing of all children and young people.

We prioritise our work with the youngest, the neediest and the most vulnerable children and their families. We specialise in working with complexity.

We know that working with, valuing, and supporting the adults in the childrens lives achieves the best results.
