Just like adults children may be affected by a range of psychological conditions and difficulties including mood disorders such as depression or anxiety or concerns relating to their health or medical diagnoses. There may be stress relating to school, family difficulties or peers. Many of these conditions can benefit from the assistance of an expert in child psychology.

Our child psychologist can help you and your child with these and other concerns and can provide advice to help your child to cope. She has experience in the treatment of a range of conditions, including:

    • Childhood trauma
    • Generalised anxiety and worry
    • Social anxiety
    • Panic
    • Agoraphobia
    • Separation anxiety
    • Health anxiety
    • Stress management
    • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
    • Trichotillomania
    • Depression/mood disorders
    • Sleeping problems
    • Self-esteem
    • Perfectionism
    • Body image concerns
    • Assertiveness
    • Behaviour management
    • Parenting

 

As a multi-disciplinary paediatric clinic our other specialists are also available for consultation if your child has a separate, related condition. Working closely together we ensure that they receive the most appropriate care in a safe, warm and reassuring environment.
