Consultation is at the heart of Stillwaters Psychology. It enables clarity of purpose, identification of relevant issues, problem solving and work planning, Commissioner centred approaches and collaborative thinking. Consultation can be at the level of the individual child, group or whole system. It takes into account individual psychological differences as well as the dynamic context within which the child is operating. Apart from children and young people themselves, parents/carers will be in the vast majority of cases, critical participants and contributors to any consultation process undertaken by the psychologist.
