Psychology and Therapeutic Services

Suffolk County Council logo

The Psychology and Therapeutic Services (PTS) work with children and young people from 0 – 25 years, as well as with the adults who care for and work with them.

We are a team of person-centred Child, Adolescent, Community and Educational Psychologists, Family Systemic Psychotherapist and a team of Inclusion Facilitators.

We support emotional wellbeing, mental health and learning on an individual, group and whole school / organisational basis. 

We are qualified to work with Children and Young People from 0-25 years as well as with the adults who care for and work with them.

We may work with you and your child/young person in order to help find ways forward.  This could involve us in helping find solutions to the issues they are facing. 

Our involvement may also include working with groups of students and working with educational and pastoral staff, e.g. in training, research and project work.

We are very keen to listen to you and ensure that the voice of your child is at the centre of our work.

We have many resources available for schools and families to freely use which can be found on our Wellbeing in Education website
