Dr Sara Sopena has extensive experience offering emotional and behavioural support to children with diagnosed developmental conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This can include psychoeducation around ASD/ADHD, behavioural interventions for specific behavioural difficulties (e.g., aggresion towards others, self injurious behaviour, repetitive/ritualistic behaviours), psychological therapy for additional emotional difficulties such as anxiety or depression using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and family support.

If it is identified that the needs of the child could be best met by working jointly with other healthcare professionals (for example, Speech and Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist or Psychiatrist), Dr Sopena has professional links with experienced professionals who can be requested to become involved as required.
