About us

Changing Minds – Applied Psychology Services is an independent, nation-wide provider delivering high-quality psychological services to children, young people and adults.

We apply effective models of psychology to ensure the very best outcomes for children, young people and adults. In doing so, our psychologists work with parents, and/or carers – and where appropriate, other professionals to create an accurate and shared understanding of a child, young person’s or an adult’s needs.

about Changing Minds

Interventions are bespoke and tailored to address, reduce and remove any identified barriers to a child or young person’s development and or learning.

Our principles

  • Children and young people have a right to have their views heard and taken into account when planning for their future.
  • Parents have a crucial role to play in their child’s development and as such, all individual work with children and young people should be carried out in partnership with parents.
  • We empower people to develop the necessary resources to make desirable changes in their own lives.
  • All children have a right to equality, inclusion and achievement.
