Growing up can be tricky. Facing big emotions and challenges is often difficult for children as they navigate their way through life.
Our team of child psychologists are focused on treating children and teens with an open heart. We provide a safe and nurturing space for your child to explore their feelings, learn lifelong skills and grow with confidence.
How we can help your child:
Worrying can become a problem when it gets in the way of life. Guiding your child to recognise, understand and manage their feelings sets them on a path to a resilient and fulfilling future.
Depression can manifest in different ways for children, making it tricky for parents and carers to spot. Diagnosis and age-appropriate support are within reach.
Learning to cope with big feelings and manage explosive reactions can take time. Exploring emotions through talk and play can teach your child the skills to self-regulate sooner.
Attention and Concentration
Does your child have trouble staying focused on activities? Getting to the root of the cause and implementing practical strategies can positively impact learning, self-esteem and growth.
Social skills can be challenging to learn, for people of all ages. Gently teaching children how to interact, problem-solve and get along with others can create harmony and open up their world.
Assessment and diagnosis can pinpoint what support your child needs to reach their full potential. This includes cognitive, Autism, PDA and Dyslexia assessments.
