The EPS provides psychological services supporting children and young people under 25 to overcome learning barriers.

Time to Listen sessions are also held regularly in children’s centres. Parents of children under five can book these if they have concerns about their child’s development or behaviour. For more information, contact your local children’s centre.
Our team have experience of working with children and young people and have a specialist qualification in educational psychology, at masters or doctoral level. They are registered as practitioner psychologists with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and undertake continuing professional development and receive regular supervision.
We maintain close links with the London training courses and trainee educational psychologists who are enrolled on approved training courses work under the supervision of qualified educational psychologists within the team. We may also employ assistant educational psychologists to work under supervision.
