How we help

We accept referrals for lots of different reasons (see ‘Who we see’ and ‘How to access the service’ pages).

We work with families in different ways depending on their preferences and needs. We use lots of different therapeutic techniques to support the people that access the service with the challenges they are experiencing surrounding their physical health conditions. We often work closely with professionals involved in the care of the child or young person. Our work is underpinned by our values as a service.

Referrals to other services

Our team  works closely with other services and agencies when additional expertise or services are required to meet children, young people and families’ needs. For example, we refer patients to the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) for access to psychiatry, family therapy or assertive outreach when a medical condition is not the primary reason for emotional distress.
