Sea Psychotherapy offers a service to children and young people aged between 5 - 25 years and their families. Treatment may be suggested by a parent/carer or friend or by a GP or someone at school or college who has noticed that a young person is struggling and would benefit from highly specialist professional treatment and support.

Referrals can be made for young people by the parent/carer with the young person's consent. Parents, carers and independent older young people may wish to self-refer.

To make a referral:

  • Please select Psychotherapy referral form from the menu on the left.
  • The referral will be sent electronically and securely and will be assessed in terms of suitability* for psychodynamic psychotherapy treatment. 
  • You will receive a response within 48 hours
  • If appropriate, an initial assessment appointment will be offered to the young person and their parent/carer to fully assess their personal development, family history and current needs.
  • Please read the Treatment model page of this website for more details about the model of treatment offered by Sea Psychotherapy.
* Sometimes, psychodynamic psychotherapy may not be the most suitable way to meet a person's therapeutic needs. If this is the case, other treatment recommendations will be suggested.
