Who are we?

We are a team of Educational Psychologists who have an extensive knowledge of child development, learning, behaviour and emotional / mental health needs. We are Practitioner Psychologists who are required to be registered by the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and we follow British Psychological Society (BPS) best practice guidelines. Within our Team we have a range of specialist interests including person centred approaches; training ELSA's (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant), Emotion Coaching, supervision, therapeutic working and family therapy.

What do we do?

Educational Psychologists provide a psychological perspective regarding the education and welfare of children and young people aged 0 – 25 years and their families. Our ambition is to transform lives with psychology by making positive change possible. The Hull City Psychological Service is fully committed to delivering the highest quality service at all times to all client groups.
