National Educational Psychological Service (NEPS)
We are psychologists who work in schools for the National Educational Psychological Service (NEPS). A psychologist ties to understand young people, how you think, feel, behave learn and get on with others. We may work with you, your parents/carers, teachers and others.
Sometimes things can be hard at home or in school, and the adults around try to help. The psychologist wants to understand what might help make things better for you.
Some of the things that we do are: listen to what you have to say; talk with people who know you well; see how you are doing in school; work with you on some tasks; and meet with you again to find out how things are, to see what is working well and what might need to change.How to connect with this service → Changes to our service due to Coronavirus →

How have your services changed due to Coronavirus?
We are still working with schools, young people and their families. We are providing services remotely. That means we talk to people over the phone, by video conference and we use email and post too.
A school can still ask their NEPS psychologist to get involved with you and the adults who support you.
