Strike action is taking place in June. We'll contact you directly if you or your child's appointment is affected.

There are rail strikes planned for May and June, which may affect your journey to our hospital and community centres. If you or your child has an appointment booked, please do all you can to attend. Plan your journey ahead and allow extra time.

Counselling for parents

Mollie Cook (counselling psychologist), Caroline Stedman (counsellor) and Louise O'Connell (counsellor and psychotherapist) provide a confidential counselling service for any parent of a child being cared for within our children's services.

What is counselling and who is it for?

Counselling aims to provide a safe space for you to think through your experiences and help make sense of difficult feelings.


Mollie, Caroline and Louise are here to help self-exploration in ways that respect your values, personal resources and capacity for choice.

The counselling team can be contacted on 020 7188 4538.
