Services for children and adolescents

Assessment and therapy services for children and adolescents

As parents and carers, we want to help our children live a positive and rewarding life. If your child or teenager is experiencing difficulty in their emotional, intellectual and social development, our therapy services can help. 

Our team are specially trained to work with younger people, and focus on the treatment of:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bullying
  • Stress
  • Self-esteem issues 
  • Drugs and alcohol abuse
  • Peer pressure
  • Relationship problems
  • Any other issue impacting on your child’s general wellbeing

Counselling with a psychologist may be helpful if your child or teenager is currently dealing with any of the following difficulties: 

  • Defiance, tantrums or oppositional behaviour
  • Mood changes, such as crying more, sadness or worrying excessively
  • Anxiety about separating from you, or ‘clingy behaviour
  • Refusing to go to school
  • Changes in sleeping or eating patterns
  • Risk-taking behaviour or self-harm
  • Attention and concentration difficulties
  • Being bullied
  • Difficulty connecting with peers and making friends
  • Decline in performance at school
  • Difficulty in adjusting to changes, such as parents separating or loss of a loved one

We can provide cognitive, behavioural, and functional assessments for children and adolescents, and we also provide training and support for parents and carers to assist in resolving issues.
