Welcome to Da Costa 
Child and Adolescent Psychology 

Support for children, adolescents and families. 

About me

I am  Kate Da Costa, a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with 20 years’ experience of working in the NHS and privately specialising in working with children, young people and families with a wide range of mental health difficulties. 

I offer assessment and treatment for children and young people for a wide range of difficulties in West Berkshire and online. The therapeutic interventions offered to young people and their families are psychologically informed and evidenced based. I like to work with children and young people directly, but also to include family and support networks when appropriate to work towards agreed therapeutic goals.

 I have been employed in a number of different NHS roles which have included working in clinics, family homes, schools, hospitals, children’s centres, GP practices, with Childrens Services and Social Care. 

 I have a particular interest in neurodevelopmental conditions, promoting resilience for young people, prevention and systemic approaches in therapy.
