At Phinity Birmingham we understand that all children experience their lives differently so we aim to get to know your child and their difficulties, as experienced by them. This means our approach is individualised and tailored to your child and their needs.
Our child psychologist may invite you and other family members to a session when appropriate. We work with children of all ages and aim to understand what has caused the issues that your child is experiencing, and how we might best work with them to process, understand, and accept their feelings as valid.
We offer a nurturing and healing space, one in which your child can feel safe. Through the therapeutic process, your child can learn how to better regulate their feelings, become more confident, and experience improved relationships. Our therapists work in various ways, from play therapy, to family therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and parental guidance.
For consistency and maximum benefit, we recommend weekly sessions, which take place at the same day and time each week, and last 50 minutes.
Phinity’s child psychologists are trained in attachment theory and child development and use their specialised knowledge as they work collaboratively with your child. This means they will attempt to understand the difficulties experienced by your child and work with them to facilitate learning around how best to cope and manage, but more importantly, how to prevent and resolve emotional issues that have become problematic in other ways.
We also like to include parents throughout the planning of therapeutic treatment, this means we will meet with you from time to time to discuss progress, and any present concerns. Through assessment, behavioural observations, play, and discussion with your child, we can learn what your child may be struggling with and help them to navigate their difficulties.
These feelings could have resulted from family problems, or problems at school, like bullying, and can result in communication problems, sleep issue, bed-wetting, or behavioural problems, like tantrums, eating concerns, withdrawal, and self-harm.
Child psychology can offer specialised support to a struggling child, helping them to work through their difficulties, rather than suffer.

Learning can be a wonderful experience, but it can also involve academic pressure and stress. Healthy stress levels can motivate us to do well, indeed many people do well under a little pressure. However for others, academia can bring about a feeling of overwhelm which can feel unmanageable. This can have consequences for our ability to achieve goals, and for our mental health, leading to anxiety and depression.
Anorexia nervosa, also known as anorexia, is an eating disorder that can result in health problems, and even death. It’s an intense focus on fears of becoming fat. Such that it causes individuals to starve themselves, sometimes exercising excessively and losing weight because they mistakenly believe they are fat.
Although Boarding School Syndrome is not an official psychiatric diagnosis, it is increasingly recognised as a serious condition, leading to psychological distress. It is thought to manifest as a cluster of emotional states and learned behaviours that can occur from growing up in a boarding school.
You might have experienced events in childhood that were disturbing and deeply distressing, causing you to feel helpless and unsafe. These events can be traumatic, impacting a person’s sense of self and their ability to experience a full range of emotions. This trauma may remain unprocessed, impacting adult life. But there are ways to work through childhood trauma.
The family unit is like a society, with its own ecosystem and culture. If we’re fortunate, we may experience a family life that is secure and sustaining, but there are still times of difficulty, because this is normal. There are ways, however, to work through problems together, and come out stronger.
