Children

Children experience a variety of physical, social, cognitive and psychological milestones throughout their development. They are learning to develop skills and manage their emotions and behaviour within their families, school and community. Finding your place and learning the ‘rules’ in different settings can be challenging for both children and parents.

Why would children come to counselling?

  • Divorce and parent separation
  • Anxiety
  • Emotion dysregulation
  • Trauma
  • Behavioural issues
  • Bedwetting
  • Self Confidence
  • Bullying
  • Transitions
  • School-related problems
  • Sleep issues
  • Social/friendship issues
  • Family issues

Seeing a psychologist can help you and your child understand their unique situation and help them to develop appropriate strategies to manage their emotions and behaviours. Psychologists can also work with parents/caregivers (and teachers) to support children and ensure that their significant people are working towards a positive and effective outcome for the child’s wellbeing.

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELLING

Sessions are adapted to the child’s age and are planned to maximise child engagement. Parents/caregivers will most likely be asked to attend the initial session and then, depending on the needs of the child, sessions will focus on children only with updates for parent/caregivers.

Children may be eligible for a referral from their GP or paediatrician under Medicare or ATAPS. For more information please see Our Fees.
