Parent Advice is a professional consultation service for parents and caregivers of children (from birth to age eighteen) who are seeking advice and guidance in relation to any concerns they have about a child’s development, behaviour or general psychological wellbeing.
Being a parent is both a rewarding and challenging experience. Parents want the best for their children but are sometimes unsure how best to navigate the issues and challenges that arise in children and adolescents. Often parents have questions or concerns about a particular aspect of their child’s development, behaviour or general psychological wellbeing that they would like to discuss with a professional. Sometimes this is just simply to reassure them that their child's development or behaviour is normal, at other times it is because they have specific concerns about their child for which they require professional advice.
Parent Advice is a service dedicated to providing expert evidenced-based advice and information on a wide range of issues. Dr Vincent McDarby is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist who has over twenty years experience working with children and adolescents, and their parents. At Parent Advice parents are provided with 1:1 confidential consultations with Dr McDarby or one of his team, all of whom are Chartered Psychologists.
These consultations provide parents and caregivers with an opportunity to discuss any queries or concerns they have in relation to their child and to be provided with evidence-based advice and interventions that are tailored to their individual child and family. Children are not seen as part of these consultations but if you feel that your child needs to be seen by a psychologist or other relevant professional, Dr McDarby and his team can provide advice on this.
