Dr Sonya Khan
Child Psychology uses Psychological theories to assess, understand, support and treat the social, emotional and cognitive development of children and young people.
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, which means I have completed a degree in Psychology, a Doctorate Qualification in Clinical Psychology, and I am registered with the British Psychological Society. Since qualifying 17 years ago I have been working in an innovative, demanding and award-winning NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) using psychological models to assess, treat and promote the psychological, social and emotional health of children, young people and their families. I now also have a private practice here at the Brackenbury Natural Health Clinic.
I specialise in assessing and treating a range of emotional and behavioural difficulties experienced by children and young people. These include: sleeping difficulties; eating difficulties; behaviour difficulties; anxiety; panic attacks; phobias; OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder); Depression; Developmental difficulties; ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder); ADHD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder); bereavement; the impact of separation and divorce; the impact of trauma; and parenting challenges.
The therapeutic models I use include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Systemic/Narrative Therapy. I will always explain what I think would be most effective for you/your child, and why, and I welcome any questions you may have.
Before booking an appointment I offer a free telephone consultation so that we can discuss your concerns and work out if the services I offer are appropriate for your needs.
If you have any questions, do call me on 07469 810 296 and we can discuss these together. You can also have a look at www.drsonyakhan.co.uk.
Professional membership: I am registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS), the Health and Care Professionals Counsel (HCPC) and the Association for Child Psychologists in Private Practice (AChiPPP).
I am registered with some Private Health Insurance Companies.
