Specialist Clinical Psychology

Clinical psychology is embedded within the Paediatric Ophthalmology service, and provides support for children, young people and families attending the clinic. The role includes offering support with adjustment to diagnosis (for parents and children), and working with any emotional difficulties.

Clinical psychology aims to help families find ways of coping with some of the possible difficulties that may arise from living with a visual impairment - for example, peer relationships, using visual aids, worries about life transitions (starting school/secondary school/college and increasing independence).
