About Us

Who we are

Nurture-Psychology Service was set up and founded by two of us – Dr Kirsty Hughes and Dr Louise Mansell – Chartered Clinical Psychologists. We pride ourselves in offering an empowering, timely, effective, compassionate and quality service to children, families and to professionals who are working with them. We have worked in the public sector (NHS CAMHS), with schools, and with children’s services for over 11 years. We have worked alongside occupational therapists, social workers, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, speech and language therapists and mental health nurses in these roles. Our diverse experience greatly enhances the service we can provide.
