Welcome to The I Matter Clinic. 

The I Matter Clinic is for parents and carers of children where there are raised concerns regarding anxious or challenging behaviour
All involvement with the Clinic starts with an in-depth assessment and recommendations process.
To learn more about the approach you can try an introduction
The  services page for a comprehensive understanding of what is on offer

If the concerns you have about a child have been apparent for a while or are complex or escalated in some way then a careful assessment and recommendations process is always recommended prior to starting out on an I Matter Journey.  

We offer specialist assessment and intervention services for  parents referred via member organisations, currently in the Kendal and South Lakes area.  The intention is to build the insight and skills of the team around your child so as to help you address a multitude of mental health and behavioural challenges for children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families.   We have a special interest in post adoption support and in skills development for young people

There is a core specialist assessment which can be complemented by a more in-depth bespoke process where funding exists.
