Psychology (clinical)


About us

The clinical psychology team sees children and families experiencing a range of difficulties. This may include supporting families with medical procedures, making decisions about treatment, and managing symptoms such as pain or bodily changes.

We also promote adjustment and wellbeing, helping children and young people manage the daily challenges associated with their medical condition.

We work directly with families under the care of Evelina London Children’s Hospital, and also support healthcare teams.

We run a number of support groups for parents and young people at Evelina London Children’s Hospital.
