Welcome to Psychology Talks
Here at Psychology Talks we are passionate about promoting good mental health for all. We provide a bespoke psychological service to support children and those who work with and care for children in a wide variety of settings. We are a midlands based multi-disciplinary team, consisting of psychologists and social workers who come with extensive experience of working with hard to reach and vulnerable children. This, along with evidence based practice enables us to tailor our skills to achieve the best outcomes for all. Our team of psychologists and social workers enable us to work therapeutically while also supporting a stable and secure environment.

We are passionate about making psychology accessible for all. Part of that is removing the fog that prevents people from understating psychological concepts and ideas. We deliver psychology, theory, knowledge and practice in a way that everybody can understand and communicate to young people, families and professionals.
We believe that psychological suffering exists in context. As such, we seek to gain an understanding of the significant relationships that the individual has in their immediate environment, and work with them in alleviating its symptoms.
We believe that this offers the young people the best possible opportunity to achieve meaningful outcomes along with providing them with the tools to ensure that they can manage their difficulties in a positive way throughout their adult life.
What We do

We work with a wide range of mental health problems concerning life issues including bereavement, domestic violence, sexual abuse, attachment difficulties, anxiety, depression, trauma and relationship issues. We understand diagnosis and the medical context to mental health problems, and work with the individual’s unique subjective psychological experience to empower their recovery and alleviate distress.
