Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster Under 5s Service
The Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster KCW Under 5s Service offers specialist treatment and consultation to both parents and professionals aimed at improving the wellbeing of children under five years old.
The team consists of therapists who usually meet with families in children’s centres within Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster. Families can also be seen in their local clinic if this is more convenient for them. Sessions are also available remotely, by phone or video.
Many children will have difficulties as part of ordinary development, but if problems start to take over everyday life, or parents feel they are not enjoying parenting, or struggling to parent their child, then they may find it helpful to speak to someone from the Under 5s Service.
