Parent/Foster Parent Consultation Service

Foster Parent and Child
We understand just how challenging it can be to raise young people in today’s increasingly complex world. We offer both a telephone and face to face parent/foster parent consultation service as we recognise that parents and foster carers caring for young people with often complex emotional needs may require professional psychological support to prevent parents and carers suffering burnout and to ensure they are able to provide the utmost emotional support for the young people they care for.
We provide psychological consultation to parents, adult relatives of children such as grandparents and aunts who act as kinship carers to young people and foster carers concerning a wide range of child and adolescent psychological difficulties. These include sexual abuse, psychological effects of bullying, conduct disorder, substance abuse, depression, self-harm parasuicidal behaviour and a wide range of other psychological difficulties.

Here at Affordable Psychology Services we provide a clear psychological understanding often from a range of therapeutic perspectives of the underlying psychological determinants of the child or adolescent’s psychological difficulties. We also ensure that each consultation provides clear psychological recommendations and strategies as to how parents, kinship or foster carers can promote young people’s emotional wellbeing.
