Welcome to the website of the Psychology Department at Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin (OLCHC).  Here you will find information about the department, including the services we offer, the staff in the department, and useful resources for children, parents and other health professionals.  Click on the headings and subheadings to be taken to the relevant sections of the website.

Our goal is to improve and maintain the psychological wellbeing of children and adolescents attending OLCHC.  We have approximately 5,000 face-to-face contacts with children and their families each year, seen either during their inpatient stay, as part of a multidisciplinary medical outpatient clinic or as an outpatient to the psychology service.  We aim to provide assessment, treatment and consultation services to children, their families and the professionals involved in the child's care, to help the child and their family cope with short and long-term illness and prevent associated psychological difficulties.
