The Caterpillar Clinic was developed in 2021 by Dr. Claire Conlon. The goal of the clinic is to provide psychological support to families in a safe, convenient, and effective way. Parents gain the most from psychological support when it is easily accessible to them and when they can access the support at a pace that works with their schedule. The Caterpillar Clinic aims to offer this type of support with its online services.
At present, we offer one-to-one parent consultation sessions that can be booked online and a range of online parenting programmes. We will endeavor to develop as many programmes as we can to suit the range of needs noted by parents.
We specialize in the following areas:
- Helping a parent understand the needs of their child
- Anxiety management for children
- Parenting a child with additional medical or developmental needs
- Managing behavioral difficulties
- Concerns around development, social communication, and interaction as well as mental health difficulties in children.
- Helping children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
- Understanding trauma, including birth trauma and trauma/anxiety related to parenting a child with additional neurodevelopmental, physical or medical needs.
- Sleep, feeding, and toileting difficulties
The Caterpillar Clinic is also on Instagram where a range of short videos may provide some additional information that might help you and your child.
What Clients Say
"I completed the workshops on managing difficult behaviour in children and understanding autism spectrum disorder and found both extremely helpful. The behavioural workshop provided a clear step-by-step toolkit that I could then apply specifically to my own child's needs. My child was recently diagnosed with ASD and the module on Autism was an excellent introduction for me, answering many of my questions in my head. The PDF handouts were invaluable to myself and other family members to refer to. I would highly recommend both workshops."
