Emotius Psychology is dedicated to alleviating emotional distress and promoting the psychological well-being of children, young people and their families.
We believe that if children are given the right therapeutic tools, they can learn to overcome life’s challenges and grow into confident, happy and resilient young adults.
What we do
Emotius Psychology provides high-quality psychological assessment and evidence-based therapeutic interventions for children, adolescents and young people experiencing mental health and emotional difficulties.
We also work with parents and carers to help them manage anxiety and/or challenging behaviour in their children. We offer a compassionate, non-judgmental approach to supporting the mental health and emotional well-being of our clients. Emotius Psychology offers a range of flexible and accessible clinical services.
This includes evening and weekend appointments that are convenient for families and do not interfere with school or work commitments. We offer online or face-to-face appointments at our clinic rooms in Twickenham, southwest London. Emotius Psychology also provides a comprehensive neuropsychological assessment and report writing service.
