Michelle McLaughlin


Child Psychology

I completed my training in Social Science and Child Psychology in the USA in 1998.

Since my return to the United Kingdom I have worked in Specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) within the NHS. I have 16years experience working in Children's Psychological Services as a Child Psychologist and Clinical Parenting Lead.

I am a member of The British Psychological Society and The Association of Family Therapy. I specialise in working with children and families experiencing a range of emotional and behavioural difficulties.

I offer individual and group interventions to families experiencing problems which might include attachment and bonding difficulties, sleeping and eating problems and challenging behaviour.

I also offer support and guidance to children experiencing anxiety, stress and peer/family relationship problems.

My work also includes working with children who may have additional needs such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder and Attachment Disorders.

I am trained in a range of evidence based parenting interventions recognised by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) including The Incredible Years Parent and Child Series of which I am an Accredited Group Leader and Peer Coach.

I am also trained in Video Interaction Guidance and I am an Independent Practitioner and Individual Trainer for the Parent Child Game.

More recently I have completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Systemic Practice and work as part of the Family Therapy Team at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust.

Within my work I recognise trust and understanding to be the key to developing positive relationships within families as well as within the therapeutic relationship and I provide a confidential and collaborative approach to working with families.

I also provide training and consultation to the broader systems that support children and young people including nurseries, schools and allied health services.
