CAYP Psychology Offers A Local Professional Specialist Service To Children & Young People

Navigating the world as a child or young person can be a complex challenge to tackle; be it behavioural issues, mental health worries or perhaps a struggle to get an assessment for autism or ADHD, there are numerous obstacles that can present themselves while they’re growing up.

While parents may be trying their best to help, sometimes extra support is needed – and it’s important to make sure that the service comes from experts, who can offer sensitive, professional and bespoke guidance and advice.

That’s where CAYP Psychology can step in, to offer their specialist services to both children and parents.

With local clinics available in Lytham (Richmond House, 3 Richmond Road, Lytham St Anne’s,
) and Poulton (Westbourne House, 3 Lockwood Avenue, Poulton-le-Fylde, FY6 7AB) and their head office based in North Manchester, CAYP Psychology is an award-winning, independent clinical psychology-led service specifically for children, adolescents, young people, and their families.

This year alone, they’ve been selected as one of the Top 100 Small Businesses in the UK, as chosen by Small Business Saturday UK, and are currently finalists in the category ‘Small Business of the Year’ at the Lloyd Business Awards 2023.

Last year, they won the esteemed “Business of the Year” at the Greater Manchester Business Awards.

They’ve used their many years of experience and knowledge to help children, young people and their families across Manchester and beyond – and could help you too.

A ‘professional, thoughtful and sensitive’ approach

The ethos behind CAYP Psychology is simple; to offer ‘an exceptional and thoughtful range of psychological assessments and therapies for social, emotional, behavioural, and psychological difficulties’ to children aged between 0-18 years.

The highly experienced team – all of whom are regulated by the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) – strive to do everything they can to offer the most effective, professional, and timely psychological support, to achieve the best possible outcomes for young people and families.

Dr Daniel Weisberg, founder and managing director of CAYP Psychology, explained: “At CAYP Psychology, we aim to understand the challenges that children face and offer the support to get through it.

“We’d describe ourselves as a values-driven psychological support service.”

One thing is for certain; the child or young person is always the priority, and their wellbeing is placed at the forefront of any assessment, therapy or service provided.

Dr Daniel added: “At CAYP Psychology, we will only ever offer the support if we have the expertise to do so.”

CAYP Psychology are proud to offer a range of support

Cognitive Assessments
The cognitive assessments offered at CAYP Psychology have been expertly developed to offer the highest quality understanding of your child’s learning abilities. They are very detailed assessments of your child’s intellectual, academic and psychological strengths and weaknesses, in addition to a detailed profile of their day-to-day functioning.

Their assessments are extremely thorough and can:

  • Provide a detailed understanding of your child’s thinking, reasoning and academic abilities
  • Potentially identify and diagnose an intellectual / learning disability
  • Potentially identify and diagnose specific learning disorders, such as dyslexia or dyscalculia
  • Evaluate intellectual and academic strengths and weaknesses
  • Assess for giftedness
  • Identify and recommend appropriate support to be put in place

Parenting support

Offering parents resources, advice and guidance is also an important part of ensuring a child’s wellbeing, giving them the skills and knowledge in order to offer the best support they’re able to.

This service includes video interaction guidance (VIG), which is an intervention through which a psychologist uses video clips of real-life situations to help parents see what is working well for them in their interactions with their child, and reflect on how to learn and develop from them.

Additionally, they offer a specific course called ‘What Next?’ which helps parents understand and positively manage an autism diagnosis.

The four-week programme allows parents and carers the opportunity to meet others going through the same thing, increase your understanding of your child’s autism through different topics, and develop strategies to respond to differences, while championing neurodiversity.

CAYP Psychology are also proud to offer the ‘Circle of Security’. This is a powerful group for parents to help understand and strengthen relationships and attachments at home.

One final offer to parents is to support new parents manage the challenging demands of the early years with children. Their experienced clinical psychologists can support parents through overcoming their young child’s problems with eating, sleeping or toilet training, understanding behavioural or emotional concerns, and help to develop healthy relationships within the whole family.

Autism and ADHD assessments

Seeking a private ADHD or autism diagnosis can be an anxiety-provoking experience, and is not a decision that is taken lightly.

It’s important that an assessment centre is properly qualified, does its due diligence in terms of gathering background information and history, and commits to producing accurate and detailed results, with clear actions indicated.

At CAYP Psychology, they have always strived to achieve the highest standards. Their assessments adhere to National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines and best practice recommendations.

Their clinicians work, or have worked, extensively within NHS teams such as Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), specialist autism or ADHD services, or neuropsychology services, and keep a finger on the pulse of the latest developments within the field.

The quality of the assessments at CAYP Psychology have meant that they are widely accepted by NHS teams, local authorities, and schools. And the team is often able to offer an assessment with no waiting list.
