The Fitzrovia Child And Family Practice.
We are a group of experienced child and adolescent mental health professionals based in central London offering a team approach to child and adolescent mental health. We work together to offer assessment and therapy for children, young people and their families. We have developed our multidisciplinary team approach from our experience of working together for many years within the NHS.
The first session is usually an assessment. You will meet two clinicians who have different areas of expertise who will work jointly to gain a thorough understanding of your concerns and needs. For younger children, we may recommend an initial meeting with parents only, depending on the nature of your concerns. For adolescents, we will usually allocate some time to meet with the young person alone during the assessment.
The assessment helps us advise you whether therapy could be helpful, and if so what type We might recommend a single therapeutic approach, such as individual sessions for the child/young person or parents, or we may suggest a package of care such as individual sessions alongside family sessions.We might also recommend a meeting with a psychiatrist. Alternatively, we might recommend further specialist assessment, such as cognitive assessment or an assessment for ASD or ADHD.
We offer a multidisciplinary team approach for assessing and treating child and adolescent mental health. We each have different specialisms and areas of expertise, which enables us to look at your particular concerns from a range of different perspectives. This helps us to decide whether therapy or specialist assessment would be helpful, and if so what kind. We are experts on mental health, but you are experts on your family, so we work together with you to plan therapeutic care tailored to your families needs.
