Specialist Clinical Psychology and Counselling

Clinical psychology and counsellor practitioners work closely together to provide support for children, young people and their families during a child/young person’s stay on the PICU. We work within the medical team and acknowledge that admission into hospital, and particularly an intensive care environment, brings different and additional challenges to families.

We offer support for any family member wishing to discuss their emotional adjustment to the situation and also support for the child/young person in terms of their experiences and their coping with any on-going medical demands or being in hospital. We also offer a bereavement service for families. There is also support offered for staff on PICU.
