WHAT WE DO
The Key Clinic was launched in 2015 by psychologist Sarah Warley with the aim of unlocking the potential of children who are struggling with learning and behavioural problems, either at home or at school. These children might already have been labelled as Dyslexic, Dyspraxic, ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s, Delayed Speech and Language, Slow Processing. Or their parents have a hunch that they are not performing as they could be. They are often smart and capable, but they cannot access or express that intelligence because something is literally ‘blocking’ their way. They are left feeling different from their classmates – frustrated and helpless. Frequently, they talk of being ‘stupid’ and their self-confidence is low. Where behavioural problems are more extreme, the impact on siblings and parents can also be significant.
Our experience is that, while labels like Dyslexia and ADD are used to describe a cluster of symptoms, little is done to try to understand why the symptom is there in the first place. Our aim, at The Key Clinic, is to explore the causes of these symptoms and treat the underlying problem without the use of drugs. Problems, which once were deemed ‘for life’, can be overcome, provided the right stimulation – or key – is given to the brain.
