Emerge Psychological Services is based in Staffordshire and provides high quality evidence-based psychological assessment and intervention for children and young people, their carers, or families.
The company is owned by Andrea Jackson, an experienced practitioner psychologist with specialist knowledge of working with peoples’ emotional, social and behavioural patterns that have proven problematic over time, often rooted in complex developmental trauma and neglect histories.


Emerge Psychological Services provide training on a variety of topics for educational, healthcare or criminal justice system professionals. We can work with you to develop a bespoke training package, responsive to the needs of your organisation, to help equip your staff with the latest up-to-date knowledge to support their role.

Emerge Psychological Services will support your organisation in the development of its staff, its services and products through consultancy advice and support. EPS have experience in service design, development and expansion and can help you grow your organisation to the next level, utilising the current evidence base to help inform and shape organisational practice and culture.

Emerge Psychological Services have significant experience in undertaking individual assessments. Whether you require an assessment to inform intervention planning or to help guide complex case management arrangements, Emerge Psychological Services will support you by completing an evidence informed holistic assessment, assessing the function and drivers for the behaviour in question from which recommendations for the effective management and intervention to support positive behavioural change can be made.

Emerge Psychological Services can design and deliver high quality, evidence informed interventions, tailored to the needs of the individual, informed by either a comprehensive assessment of risk and need, or via a collaborative intervention planning exercise. Emerge Psychological Services are experienced in working with individuals presenting with a wide range of emotional, social and behavioural challenges and offer a range of psychological intervention options, to suit.

Emerge Psychological Services can provide clinical supervision both to qualified and in-training psychologists, or those working in either an educational, healthcare or criminal justice organisation involved in behaviour change work. Supervision will ensure both the best possible support for staff engaging in this complex work and the use of safe and ethical clinical practice techniques.

Emerge Psychological Services will work with you and your organisation to develop structured intervention packages for your staff to utilise, to help address specific areas of identified need.  Packages can be developed to support both 1-2-1 and group-based delivery models, or self-directed learning booklets for more autonomous working, if required.

EPS offers a variety of service packages to support residential care providers to achieve the best possible outcomes for the children and young people in their care. We can provide specialist psychological input, in the form of case file reviews, assessments and/or interventions or help to support staff, through training, consultancy support or supervision.
Services can be offered on an ad-hoc basis or as part of an annual service agreement, at the level required for your organisation. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

“Andrea is providing supervision for me in relation to a case I am currently working with. I have worked with Andrea several times before and she is always insightful, reflective and challenging in supervision, bringing her extensive knowledge and experience to help me formulate and understand my cases better. She asks the right questions, at the right time to help me develop my own position and understanding, rather than simply telling me what to do! She has the perfect mix of professionalism, approachability and humour, that empowers and motivates”.

CP, Practitioner Psychologist

Delegate, Introduction to Trauma and Trauma Informed Practice training

Delegate, Introduction to Trauma and Trauma Informed Practice training

“Brilliant training. Andrea is really knowledgeable and approachable”.
Delegate, key therapeutic skills training


“Andrea has delivered trauma training for my staff. Their overarching view was that whilst it was challenging at times, it was the best training they have ever received. It has supported staff to not only understand the children we work with and their journey but also for my staff to understand themselves better”.

Director, ArtroHouse


“My daughter has been suffering from anxiety and low mood for several years and has struggled to remain in school as a result. Andrea has worked with my daughter a while now and has helped her understand her emotions more and has worked with her to develop ways to manage them more effectively. Andrea has the ability to work with my daughter in a manner that is responsive to her and can effectively strike the balance of remaining professional but also friendly and funny. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Andrea and her service to other parents and young people – in fact I already have”

Parent, AR, anxiety, emotional regulation and distress tolerance work


“Andrea has helped my son enormously in managing his emotions better. He has found her support really helpful and actually looks forward to his sessions with her. I have found her to be supportive and caring, whilst helping me to understand a little more about my son’s behaviour and how my response and management might have not been helpful to my son”.

Parent, JG, re: Emotional Management Intervention work


“Andrea’s attention to detail, her focus on children and ability to disseminate information to give concrete advice and assessments for children is some of the best I have seen in the residential childcare industry”.

Director, ArtroHouse


“Andrea has worked with some of our most hard to reach young people. She has tailored her intervention with each to ensure it meets their needs and addresses their identified issues. Andrea completes thorough assessments and gathers lots of information which means that she has a great understanding of the young people and the teams supporting them. She has provided us with feedback forms and also has input to multi-disciplinary meetings which have been a great support with the Local Authority. We will definitely be seeking support from Andrea in the future and appreciate her professional and creative approach”.
