Welcome to The Little Psychology Company. Because sometimes
it’s the little things that make the biggest difference.

Anxiety

It’s natural to experience a small amount of anxiety. But if anxieties and worries start to impact on daily life and function for children and young people, then you may want to talk through your concerns with us. Anxiety can include social anxiety, separation anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and specific phobias.

Self-esteem

The opinion we have of ourselves. Insecurities can impact a child’s confidence to engage in an activity, meet new people as well as their motivation and resilience. Our strategies can boost emotional wellbeing, which is a balance of feelings (positive and negative) and perceived happiness and satisfaction, to enable a child to successfully function in everyday life and cope with challenges.

Behaviour

The way an individual reacts and responds in situations and to experiences. Behaviour can be observed, reinforced and taught. At The Little Psychology Company we work with parents and educators using research-based approaches to help with any concerns you may have.

Mental Health

Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood through to adulthood. It includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being and affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices.

Learning

Learning is the process of acquiring new knowledge, understanding, skills, behaviours and values. Children can learn in a variety of different ways and teaching methods / environments can respond and change in response.

Social Interaction

As children grow, they develop their own social skills, which are socially expected behaviours, including turn-taking, resolving conflict, sharing, tolerating and being with others, as well as communication skills, respect, empathy and understanding different perspectives. All children develop at different rates, but if you have any concerns, feel free to talk to us.

Communication

In psychology terms, this relates to how children’s perspectives, opinions and views are expressed through language, or pre-verbal means, as well as how language is understood and processed.

Anger

Anger is an instinctive reaction that can be useful or positive and protect from a problematic situation. However, it can also be negative or harmful, with impacts on relationships and can lead to violence. Children can feel and show anger in different ways as they grow up. We can help parents understand a child’s behaviour and develop strategies to help children express feelings in a healthy way.

Bullying

Bullying is when a person deliberately and repeatedly hurts someone else. The hurt can be physical or emotional and happen at school or online through cyberbullying. If bullying is affecting a child’s day-to-day life, a psychologist may be able to help. We support you to support your child or student, as well as helping to create safe and healthy school and home environments that promote physical and psychological wellbeing.

Attention & Focus

The ability to attend and engage with a particular task for a period of time, process information and filter out distracting stimulation. Attention and focus help children learn and practice new skills. We can help support parents and educators with strategies to help improve attention and concentration, as well as listening to any concerns.

Play

Play is how children explore, learn and make sense of their world, as well as developing problem-solving techniques, social and emotional learning, boundaries, limitations and early literacy and numeracy skills.

Motivation

Motivation is the process that initiates, guides and maintains goal-oriented behaviours. It’s what causes you to act – whether that’s getting a glass of water to reduce thirst, or reading a book to gain knowledge. Different types of motivation are described as being either extrinsic or intrinsic – extrinsic motivation arises from outside the individual and often involves rewards or praise; intrinsic motivation arises from inside the individual such as completing a complex task for the personal gratification of solving a problem.

Depression & low mood

Depression is a common mental health problem that can cause low mood, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, low energy and poor concentration.

Relationships

This includes forming, maintaining, ending and mending relationships, as well as being aware of the individual’s role and impact on others within the relationship.

Attachment

This relates to the importance of relationships with key adults in children’s lives. It also includes understanding the impact of early life experiences and how children and young people make sense of the world.

Child Development

Child development refers to the range of physical, emotional and psychological changes that individuals grow through, from birth to adulthood.

Transition Planning

Thinking about and making arrangements and preparations for when a child is moving from one environment to another, commonly when a child is moving from primary to secondary school, or another classroom. It could also relate to children who find it challenging transitioning from one activity to another, or one setting to another e.g. lunch hall to classroom.

SEND

SEND stands for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. The Children and Families Act 2014 defines a child or young person as having special educational needs, if they have a learning difficulty or disability, which requires special educational provision to be made for them. SEND can be thought of in four main areas: communication and interaction; cognition and learning; social, emotional and mental health; and sensory and/or physical needs.

Adolescents

When we talk about adolescents, this relates to the learning, development and care of children and young people from 13 to 19 years old. Young adulthood is defined as relating to the learning, care and development of young people from 16 to 25 years old.

Early Years

When we refer to early years, we define it as relating to the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old.

The support you need.
Whenever you need it.
Because every child
deserves the chance
to succeed.
