About Wavelength Psychology
Learning, development, and emotional growth are all elements of a journey that some children find difficult to undertake alone. We firmly believe that by travelling together in the same direction, parents, school staff and others who influence the lives of children can shape their future in positive ways. If we are all on the same wavelength we can achieve so much more.
A holistic view of child development, a clear understanding of individual strengths and needs, and a commitment to stepping into the shoes of children and those closest to them lie at the heart of our philosophy.
The challenges and demands which face children and young people, their families, and schools can be very diverse. With this in mind, we recognise the importance of an individually tailored approach whilst working with clients to explore areas of strength and need, wellbeing, development and learning.
