Specialist Clinical Psychology

Support from clinical psychologists and counsellors is available to children, young people and their families under the care of the Paediatric Gastroenterology Team at Addenbrooke's Hospital.

Many of the children and young people we work with have a diagnosis of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. We also routinely see children and young people with chronic abdominal pain, reflux, complex feeding difficulties and medically unexplained symptoms.

Clinical psychologists and counsellors offer assessment and intervention to help children, young people and their families cope with chronic gastrointestinal medical conditions. This may include support adjusting to a new diagnosis, preparing for medical procedures and surgery, pain management, adherence to medication, and strategies/family interventions for managing physical symptoms that negatively impact on everyday life.

We work within multi-disciplinary clinics alongside consultants, nurses, dietitians, and other medical professionals to provide support to hospital outpatients and inpatients, as well as offering separate psychology outpatient clinics for children and families.
