My name is Emily Vincent and I am an Educational Psychologist registered with the HCPC. Based in Cheltenham I provide Educational Psychology services in the Gloucestershire area.
Educational Psychologists (EPs) have training in how people think, feel and learn. Through understanding the young person’s views, and by working with the child/ young person, their parent/s and school, EPs help find solutions to the challenges being experienced, which may involve learning difficulties and/or social, emotional or behavioural problems.
We’ve put together this resource to help signpost parents to the right service.
It may be that you need to request an assessment with an occupational therapist, speech & language therapist or a mental health professional, rather than an educational psychologist. Of course, please always check that a professional is appropriately qualified and regulated before making any appointments.
