South East Psychology believes that educational psychology services should be freely available through schools or local authorities to all children who are failing to make adequate progress or experience social, emotional or behavioural difficulties related to school. We are currently unable to undertake work commissioned directly by parents/carers.
If you have a concern about your child’s educational progress or behaviour in school, arrange to meet with the school’s Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo), who will explain how the school is supporting your child. If your child fails to make satisfactory progress despite support and interventions, the school might make a referral to an educational psychologist (or another professional).

"Lucy took time to understand what we as parents, were concerned about and ensured these were fully addressed in her report. Our son thoroughly enjoyed his assessment, Lucy put him at ease, meaning we obtained reliable and accurate results."
Secondary SENCO, July 2018
"Lucy has provided an outstanding service including support for staff, students and their families resulting in positive outcomes. The training that has been provided has been professional and relevant and included ongoing supervision and support, I am looking forward to working with Lucy and her team in the future."

"Having the services of our own Trust EPs is extremely valuable to our students as well as staff. The EPs take the time to build a rapport with the students and their parents."
