The Service is made up of a team of highly qualified Educational Psychologists. We are applied psychologists concerned with the development, learning and social and emotional wellbeing of children and young people.
We promote a collective, joint problem solving approach that leads to a shared understanding and ownership of problem situations and improved outcomes for vulnerable children and young people aged 0–25 who are Lambeth residents or who attend Lambeth schools We employ a wide range of applied psychological and educational skills, intervention techniques and approaches for helping children and young people, teaching staff, parents and carers within a school or community context. We are all registered as Educational Psychologists with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and maintain the professional codes of conduct of the British Psychological Society (BPS)
