Child psychology
Child psychology sessions are recommended when a child is experiencing difficulty managing their emotions, are going through or have gone through a stressful event or when a child needs additional support to learn strategies to help them through their day.

We work closely with family members, teachers and other professionals to encourage a collaborative approach and ensure that the child and family feel supported.

Counselling and assessment is available for a range of areas. Some examples include:

  • Adaptive functioning (self-care and independent functioning)
  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Bullying
  • Challenging behaviours
  • Depression
  • Family issues
  • Learning issues
  • Resilience and coping
  • Relationships
  • School readiness
  • School refusal
  • Self-esteem and assertiveness
  • Sleep difficulties
