Specialists in psychological assessment and treatment

KindleKids is a child psychology service run by an experienced highly specialist Chartered Clinical Child Psychologist and specialist team. We work together with parents (and schools where appropriate) to assess, understand, support and provide strategies for managing a range of difficulties and concerns. We offer:

  • Educational / Psychological Assessment
  • Therapeutic support to children and teenagers
  • Parenting support
  • Consultation to schools

We can help with a range of emotional, behavioural, social and learning issues that may be contributing to a child or teenager feeling unhappy, lacking in confidence or feeling out of control. Following psychological assessment, the child psychologist works with parents so that individual treatment plans can be developed to support them and their families in understanding and addressing their difficulties while at the same time acknowledging and nurturing their relative strengths, in order to help them to reach their potential.

Please see our website for parenting tips and more information about who we are, how we can help and what we offer.

What people are saying:
I have found this course really enlightening and I have been surprised at how much of it is applicable to my life and my family. I have learnt so much and feel that Leanne has a wonderful expertise in this field. By doing this course ( as opposed to taking my child to a therapist ) I am now able to offer support myself, model behaviour and improve communication with my children . I didn’t realise I could be so instrumental in helping my children with the difficulties they face, and I feel almost privileged to be sharing this journey with them now. Leanne has given me more confidence to be able to help my children manage their anxiety in a healthy way, and to ultimately encourage them to be the best that they can be. Thank you! Claire (children 9 & 13)


The POWER course is packed with valuable insights, clever analogies and practical strategies for helping children cope with anxiety, anger and social challenges. In particular, the course helped me, as a parent, better understand my children. I connected with the gentle approaches for encouraging communication and optimism. Thank you! Nili (children 9 & 12) The POWER course highlighted the vital elements underpinning emotional wellbeing and offered really useful strategies and techniques to bring about positive change. Leanne presents a comprehensive guide to understanding a child’s anxiety, underlining the fundamental role that parents play in both building a calmer environment and facilitating a more resilient mindset for children. A valuable resource for parents to retain, revisit and incorporate into the everyday care of children’s mental health. Naomi (children with ASD and ADHD aged 16 & 13)

Canterbury Child Psychotherapy

Lisa McCafferty, Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist

I am an experienced, approachable Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist who trained at the Tavistock clinic in London. For many years, I have worked therapeutically with children, adolescents and their families in a variety of settings including the NHS, schools and in independent practice. My approach is flexible and creative, integrating Psychoanalytic knowledge of child development with therapeutic skill to make sense of a child’s troubled thoughts or feelings. I am passionate about offering high quality, age appropriate therapeutic interventions that are tailored to the individual child or adolescent.

I work with a wide range of difficulties which may impact on a young person's development, relationships and school life. These include but are not limited to depression, anxiety, separation and attachment difficulties, self-harm, complex developmental trauma, behavioural concerns including aggressive outbursts, eating and sleeping difficulties, distress in relation to gender identity, relationship problems and poor self-esteem. I have a specialist interest in working with adolescents suffering from or at risk of developing an eating disorder.

I offer both long term and short term psychotherapy as well as specialist assessments and consultations to help parents, carers or professionals in understanding their child. Length and intensity of therapy depends on each child’s needs and will be discussed after initial consultation with parents/carers and usually 3 assessment sessions with the child. I am a full member of the Association of Child Psychotherapists on whose websites you can find helpful information: www.childpsychotherapy.org.uk.

My warm and welcoming therapy room is based in a central location in Canterbury. Directions and car parking details can be forwarded on request. I also offer consultation and Psychotherapy remotely via video link. More details about myself and my approach to working with children, young people and their families can be found on my website: www.canterburychildpsychotherapy.co.uk

Counselling for kids

NLP, CBT, Hypnotherapy & counselling therapists for children & teens

At NLP4Kids we help children and their families overcome a vast range of problems. Typically these fall into the mild mental health and wellbeing areas such as anxiety, confidence issues, habits and phobias though we can help with more serious problems such as self harming, eating disorders and learning difficulties too.

Our practitioners are all DBS checked, insured and have undertaken first aid and safeguarding training. They work in schools and in the community delivering sessions one to one with young people and in workshops too. In addition, our practitioners attend retraining and have access to ongoing professional development.

Whilst we are not counsellors or psychotherapists, our work can be similar to these methodologies. NLP (neuro linguistic programming) has some similarity to CBT too, but tends to work on a more emotional (rather than just cognitive) level.

There are many different elements to NLP. Some of it works with our internal thinking and the quality of those thoughts. Other aspects of NLP focus on communication, managing emotions and developing better responses to challenging situations.

Many of our practitioners have trained in additional therapies, such as hypnotherapy.

As well as working with children and teenagers, we also work with parents and teachers or others who have influence and intervention with young people. This could be via workshops or in one to one coaching sessions.

Whether you are struggling to support a stressed out child or are finding it a challenge to engage your teenager in conversation, our practitioners are here to support you and your family. We always make sure that we create a good “fit” between the practitioner and the child and our free consultation sessions go a long way to ensure you find someone who will help you to achieve rapid lasting change.
