TypePaediatric Psychology Service
The Paediatric Psychology Service work with young people and families living with a medical condition. We offer assessment and support to those with diagnoses such as diabetes, epilepsy, cystic fibrosis, chronic pain, cancer and many more.
Young people with such medical conditions can understandably feel anxious, frustrated and upset at times. We may support people to further consider the links between diagnosis, emotions and activities of daily living. This can help individuals to feel more confident about treatment or necessary procedures.
The service also work closely with medical teams at the hospitals and liaise with other disciplines to provide holistic support.
Who is this service for? As part of Children and Young People’s Specialist Services, we work with 0-19 year olds in Northamptonshire.
We also offer support to those around the young person (e.g. parents, siblings and medical teams).
