Our Core Beliefs and Values

Ethics and Integrity

High standards of ethics and integrity, guided by the British Psychological Society Division of Educational and Child Psychology codes of conduct, are fundamental to all aspects of our practice.

Positive Relationships

Positive and trusting relationships which promote feelings of safety and security are fundamental for growth and development.

Promoting Inclusion

Schools both reflect and shape society and should therefore welcome and include all children and young people from the locality they serve. All our involvement is aimed at promoting inclusion, which involves changing schools, not changing children.

Collaboration

Collaboration with children and young people, their parents and carers, education staff and other professionals is crucial to bring about positive change.

Our Services

ELSA Training

South East Psychology CIC is a registered provider of ELSA training and supervision and has a long and successful track record of providing ELSA training and on-going support and supervision for ELSAs in schools.

More Info

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).

"Excellent sessions; so glad I did this and can’t wait to get started."
