Child Psychology

Children and adolescents sometimes face a complex world of social networking, with pressures and consequences that are often beyond the understanding of themselves and their parents.

Our child psychologists specialise in connecting with your child and assisting them in overcoming their struggle whilst educating them how to better understand themselves and the world around them. Research shows that early intervention with children and teenagers often leads to greater success in adulthood and can assist in the prevention of anxiety, depression, and anger as well as resilience to stress.

Our approach to child counselling therapy is based on successful, well established methods that greatly benefit the individual and our clinicians ensure that where in the best interest of your child, parents will be included or informed throughout the process. We can also assist parents with tools to assist with their child’s issues and to improve their relationship with their child when needed.

Mind@Work Psychology has experienced therapists who can help children reach their full potential through counselling.

We believe in the importance of early intervention as an essential tool in assisting the prevention of additional future issues.
