We know that growing up can be challenging and the pressures of modern-day life are difficult to cope with at times. We also know that parenting is tough and when young people are struggling to cope things can become stressful. Sometimes children and adolescents benefit from professional support, and a space away from concerned adults to help them make sense of their feelings and experiences. The Child Psychology Hub can offer this safe space to young people who wish to develop a greater understanding of themselves, their relationships, or to learn skills to cope with how they are feeling. This support does not need to be long term, especially if the system around the child is able to consider adaptations as well.

We also know that some parents/carers wish to seek support for themselves first without involving a professional directly with their child. The Child Psychology Hub can offer tailored, flexible and non-judgmental parenting support and coaching. We are passionate about translating the science of parenting into easy to understand and follow parenting support. This support is delivered online at a time that is convenient to you.

We also offer comprehensive child learning and cognitive assessments (including learning disability assessments), please click here for more information.

In addition, please sign up for our free parenting club where you will receive emails with parenting tips, support and training.

Hi, I am Dr Ella Woods mum of two, clinical psychologist and founder of the Child Psychology Hub.

Welcome, I hope you find the support you are seeking. I started The Child Psychology Hub with the aim of offering a clinical psychology service that was simple to access, convenient and friendly. I have 13 years’ experience working alongside children and adolescents experiencing mental health difficulties. I also work within a specialist NHS child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) as a senior psychologist.  As a registered clinical psychologist, I can offer high quality, evidence-based (proven) assessment and interventions to children, adolescents and their families/carers.

If you have any questions or feedback please do not hesitate to get in contact with me here.
