The Educational Psychology Service works to improve the wellbeing and educational outcomes of all children and young people in West Lothian through the application of psychology in practice.
Our service is an innovative and dynamic service, committed to improving the wellbeing and educational achievements of children and young people within West Lothian. We work mainly through schools and nurseries, with each establishment having a link Educational Psychologist. We work with others who are trying to help children and young people make the most of their lives. We will always seek the views of parents/carers, children and young people. Using our knowledge of psychology, child development, learning and education we provide support, training and advice.

We aim to achieve this by:
- Placing the needs of children and young people at the centre of everything we do
