Supporting kids and young people to overcome their challenges and thrive.
We offer psychology support for children from 12 months of age through to young adulthood who are experiencing a range of developmental, emotional, behavioural or social difficulties.
Our psychologists work from a developmental and biopsychosocial framework to deliver evidence-based therapy services. This means we understand a young person’s behaviour and presenting concern within the context of their developmental stage, relationships and environment.
We take the time to get to know you and your child and make sure therapy is an engaging and rewarding experience. Your psychologist will discuss with you which therapeutic approach is recommended and provide guidelines on the length and frequency of appointments required to achieve your goals.
In most cases, it is considered essential to work with parents as well as your child to ensure a collaborative and meaningful approach to change. Collaboration with schools and other professionals involved in your child’s care may also form an important part of the therapeutic process.
