How we help your child or teen with their mental health

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:

Psychological Assessment

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.

Diagnosis

the assessment outcomes provide a psychological diagnosis that becomes a starting point for management and treatment of your child or teen’s condition.

Treatment

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.
