Educational Psychology Service Helpline
From Somerset County Council Children’s Services:
During these unprecedented times, we all find ourselves facing new challenges. For many, this will bring about new anxieties, for other it may worsen worries.
Where children and young people are affected, you may notice that they react to uncomfortable feelings and thoughts by changing their behaviours and demonstrating behaviours you have not seen from them before. In turn, these behaviours can add to an already stressful home situation.
It is important to remember that self-isolation does not equate to social isolation.
If you are a parent/carer of a child in Somerset and would like to speak to a Psychologist with any concerns arising for you, or your family during this time, then the Educational Psychology Service is here for you. We are able to offer an initial 30 minute telephone consultation (discussion) and a potential follow up call of another 30 minutes if appropriate.
Calls will be offered Monday-Friday, during usual working hours.
