We provide assessments and interventions for needs relating to bullying for children and young people at home, in education and in the community.

What needs are associated with bullying?

Bullying can be in verbal, physical, mental or digital form. Bullying negatively impacts the way that children and young people think, feel and behave, affecting a number of different areas of their life and their social, emotional and academic functioning. At HSR Psychology, we work with young people who have and are experiencing bullying as well as those who are bullying others. Bullying may result in or be caused by:

Bullying can affect children and young people in different ways and may impact multiple areas of their life. Early needs identification and early intervention reduces the secondary effects of bullying.

Our services can be offered following an Initial Discussion with a member of our team. You read more information about this process below.

Our process

At HSR Psychology we ensure that we meet the needs of children and young people. To achieve this we ensure that any specific assessments, intervention, or direct work, is only carried out following an initial discussion.

Our process for any specific assessments, intervention, or direct work is as follows:

How are needs in relation to bullying assessed?

Needs related to bullying can be assessed through a variety of means including:

Clinical interview

Clinical interviews can be carried out with teachers, parents and carers. During these interviews our specialist will be able to gain a greater understanding of the child or young person's situation from a range of perspectives.

Social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) assessment

A SEMH assessment will assess can assess specific SEMH needs e.g. anxiety, related to bullying or it can provide a general overview of the individual’s mental health. 


Observations are often used to see how a child or young person behaves in their normal environment e.g. at home or in school. Our specialists will be looking for behaviours which indicate a particular difficulty or concerns in the individual’s life. Observations allow our practitioners to give specific recommendations following the assessment.

What happens after an assessment?

Any needs identified during assessment will be written up into a short or more detailed report according to the circumstances, from which future steps can be recommended. The type of report can be decided upon in the initial discussion. Future steps may include intervention, which will be recommended according to needs identified in the assessment. A specialist intervention can reduce the risk of difficulties or situations escalating. 

What are the specialist interventions we offer?

Our team of psychologists offer different interventions which are appropriately matched to the needs of individuals. Interventions will be chosen according to the individual and their unique circumstances. Examples of interventions we can provide include:

We will agree on interventions and discuss them prior to beginning our input. Interventions provide young people and their families strategies to help support them now and going forward in the future, if the difficulties or concerns related to bullying return.
