Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists are trained to carefully observe, listen to and respond to what and how a child or young person may be communicating.

At Head and Heart Child, Adolescent and Family Psychotherapy in Birmingham, we offer a supportive environment in which to explore feelings and think about what may be troubling. This process can lead to the individual’s quality of life in their family and school improving,

We tailor our approach to suit each individual and their circumstances.

We offer a variety of interventions

Consultations with parents and/or carers that aim to promote understanding of the child’s perspective and how their thoughts and feelings may be informing behaviour, as well as exploring the adult’s experience of parenting and how this may influence their style as a parent.

Assessment to support understanding difficulties for the child or young person, their parent(s) or carer(s) and to address what may be the most helpful next step, which may be sufficient in itself or may lead on to:

    • Short-term or long-term psychotherapeutic work with children, young people and their parents and/or carers
    • Parent Infant Psychotherapy
    • Psychotherapeutic work with the family as a group, using all available perspectives to understand difficulties in relationships

Consultation and supervision to support multidisciplinary colleagues concerned with the wellbeing and development of children and young people in a variety of roles and contexts, including Counsellors, Psychologists, Social Workers, Teachers, Family Support Workers, Paediatric colleagues and other medical disciplines.
