From diagnosis to mental health management, our practitioners genuinely care about helping your child or teen improve their wellbeing. We work with them in the following ways:
this enables us to examine your child’s behaviour and emotions. It allows us to better understand what your child or teen is dealing with so we can diagnose their condition.
the assessment outcomes provide a psychological diagnosis that becomes a starting point for management and treatment of your child or teen’s condition.
our psychologists will create a personalised treatment plan for your child or teen. So, we can begin to ease some of their distress. Treatment may combine therapy with tools such as CBT, DBT or ACT to help your child understand and cope with current and future issues.
Like adults, children and adolescents can benefit from therapy to help deal with a range of mental health conditions. Some of the more common ones we work with are:
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Bullying and peer issues
Gender and sexuality issues
Sexual or physical abuse
If you or another family member needs support, you have the convenience of working with a different psychologist within our practice. You’ll already be familiar with how we work and feel confident you’ll receive the highest standard of care. If you speak to our friendly reception team, they’ll do everything possible to find you the most convenient appointment times.
