About Gateway Psychology

Gateway Psychology is an independent psychology service, providing assessment and therapeutic services to support children, young people and families in Stoke-on-Trent and the surrounding areas.

We offer a range of specialist child psychology services to meet individual needs. 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 values

We believe our values are what set us apart. Overall, we aim to facilitate each individual child’s movement through the challenges or ‘gateways’ being faced at a particular time, whether emotional, behavioural, relational or developmental.

We are committed to providing professional, ethical and skilled psychological intervention for children, young people and families in the Stoke-on-Trent area, the surrounding regions and further afield.

We believe in working closely with the whole system around the child rather than just the child alone.

We endeavour to provide a flexible and timely opportunity for children, young people and families to access psychological services and assistance.

We make every effort to work in close liaison with existing services such as health, education and social care.

Our model

The Gateway Psychology Model explains the way we work. It is based on research about how trauma affects the brain and describes the process we typically take when working with children, young people and families.

We know that children and young people live within a wider, often complex context. They can’t be expected to find the way through problems on their own. The Gateway Model describes how important it is for children to have strong support around them, especially at difficult times, before taking the steps needed for change to happen safely.
