How can a psychologist help your child?
Our Psychology service provides clinical assessment and treatment of a wide range of emotional, cognitive and behavioural difficulties that children can experience. Some of these areas include:
Our Psychology service aims to assist with reducing the symptoms and distress associated with these difficulties, and to help improve how well a child is able to participate at home, daycare, school, and in any other aspects of the community that are important to them.
What can you expect?
The Psychologist’s role is to conduct a comprehensive assessment involving a parent/guardian interview, as well as a child assessment. The Psychologist will then set collaborative goals to guide the course of therapy.
During the treatment phase of therapy, the Psychologist may work with the parent(s)/guardian(s) and the child to achieve the collaborative goals. Therapy involves the use of evidence based techniques (e.g. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) to better equip parents and children in managing their difficulties, and to improve how they can function in everyday life.
