Therapy Services For Schools & Children's Homes

Core Psychology Services

Our Services

Core Psychology Services provide a full therapy service to independent schools and children's homes for young people.

Dr Peter Cliff (Counselling Psychologist) set up Core Psychology services in 2013 and has been providing outstanding clinical services.

We provide a warm, safe environment for children and adolescents. We have extensive experience working in a variety of children settings ranging from secure to open settings. The first step is to carry out a highly specialised assessment and we use a variety of methods to engage children and adolescents.

Play therapy is used in different forms depending on the age of the young person. Core Psychology has practitioners that have been trained in ADOS-2 which means that Autism assessments can be carried out at the independent schools.
