Name of Service or Support
Parenting Advice Drop In Clinic
Description of Service or Support:
The Primary Care Psychology Service provides a weekly advice clinic to parents or carers who wish to seek advice from a Clinical Psychologist with regard to any aspect of parenting. The types of concerns that are typically discussed include, dealing with behavioural issues, helping children to deal with worry or grief or challenges in life. Parents also come with questions about whether they should be concerned about a child?s development and if they should seek a referral to a particular service. Parents / carer?s attend the clinic without children. This allows for an honest, open discussion with the Psychologist. As it is a Drop-In Clinic no appointment is necessary. It operates on a first come, first served basis. Each clinic has 4 slots in which the Clinical Psychologist can meet with parents on a one-to one basis. Parents will not be expected to discuss concerns with other parents/carers
