We are so proud to support this vital resource, providing education staff with immediate, free and confidential advice on supporting vulnerable children and families who have experienced Domestic Abuse.

It is available Monday-Friday, 8.00am-1.00pm. The number is 02045 139 990.


We offer a wide range of education services. As a leading multidisciplinary practice, Psychology Associates offers a service that is extensive and bespoke. We work direct with Schools, Colleges, Local Authorities and national charities. We also support children and young people and families that access the Adoption Support Fund.

Our Specialist Support Education Team is made up of:

Assessment, therapy, staff training and services tailored to your setting

The multidisciplinary nature of our team means that our menu of services is extensive and can always be tailored to your need.

We can provide services such as:

A ‘whole setting’ approach to wellbeing and academic achievement

We recognise the importance of staff wellbeing and provide a range of supervision groups for education staff. Throughout the year we host conferences and community training events – these are updated regularly on our ‘Training’ page under ‘Upcoming Events’.

Supporting children and their carers

Psychology Associates is an Ofsted Registered ‘Outstanding’ Adoption Support Agency with a wealth of experience in supporting adoptive families.

One of the main services we can provide is DDP (Dyadic Developmental Practice). DDP is a therapeutic approach designed to support children and families who have experienced attachment difficulties and developmental trauma.

Further services we can provide to support for adopted children and families:

Schools Supervision Groups

It is important that school staff are able to reflect on their practice, consider their wellbeing and explore innovative ways to support children, young people and families. We will be holding supervision groups for staff starting from September 2020 to July 2021. We will be focusing on social-emotional wellbeing and mental health, family support and safeguarding and social communication and interaction.
