Gateway Psychology about our psychology service

Gateway Psychology is based in Stoke-on-Trent and is a clinical psychology service providing for the psychological needs of children, young people and families.  Our services cover the immediate city as well as the surrounding regions, including Staffordshire, Cheshire, Shropshire and Derbyshire.

We offer a range of specialist psychology services to meet individual needs. We draw upon the expertise of psychologists and therapists who are specialists in particular areas of child psychology.  We can help with various difficulties, including emotional, behavioural, relational and developmental issues that may underlie or contribute to an overall lack of well-being.

Our aim is to help the child through the challenges being faced at a particular time. We recognise that the child or young person exists within a wider, often complex context and are careful to ensure that the ‘problem’ is not seen to be solely located within the child. As such, we liaise closely with parents, carers, schools and other agencies, providing consultation, guidance and training, where appropriate.

Our services include:

  • General psychological services for children and young people
  • Specialist psychological services for:
    • Young people in transition
    • “Gifted and talented” children and young people
    • Parenting interventions
    • Children in the care of Local Authorities
  • Consultation to parents, carers and professionals involved in the child’s care
  • Training to parents, carers and professionals involved in the child’s care
  • Supervision of clinical psychologists and other professionals
  • Expert Witness work for the courts
