Children’s Psychological Services – Preston & Lancaster

About our service

All children get upset sometimes and can have difficulties in their family lives.

We see children and young people who are very worried, sad or angry. This can affect their daily lives, including their behaviour, other feelings, eating and sleeping, as well as their relationships with friends and family.

We also help children and young people to cope with significant health problems, for example chronic fatigue and pain, or developmental difficulties, such as ASD and ADHD.

We support children, young people and their parents by listening to their concerns, talking, drawing and sometimes playing games. We can see children and young people on their own, or with parents/carers; sometimes we help best by seeing the parents/carers on their own.
