Child and Family Psychologist Derbyshire

Percuro Psychology work with adults, children, young people and their families, caregivers and wider systems. Our mission is to help you to achieve a happy and fulfilled life through providing high quality psychological interventions that are evidence based and tailored to your unique needs and difficulties.

We work hard to really get to know your personal story and work collaboratively with you to help you overcome any obstacles to living the life you want. We draw upon a range of models and approaches, although attachment theory is at the forefront of everything we do. We offer psychological therapy, parenting support, training and consultation. We also offer couples and family therapy.

Percuro Psychology was established by Dr Melita Housley BSc (Hons), DClinPsy, CPsychol, who is a HCPC registered clinical psychologist, chartered with the BPS.

We aim to offer an appointment within 2 weeks of you contacting us and offer evening and weekend appointments to fit around school hours. We can liaise with local NHS services to support a transition if you wish to access support from us whilst you are awaiting NHS treatment.

We accept referrals from individuals, parents, GPs and Social Care as well as private fostering and adoption agencies. We are also a registered provider with major insurance companies (please provide details when you contact us).

We are able to offer training packages on attachment and early complex trauma, and run in-school emotional regulation groups for children

At Percuro Psychology we understand that it may not always be practical to attend face to face sessions. You may live some distance from the practice clinic or may struggle to fit things in with other commitments. This is especially a possibility at the current time due to government guidelines around social distancing to protect against COVID19.

We are able to offer remote sessions via an online platform called Zoom. Please contact us should you wish to explore this option.
