Child and Family Psychology

child and family psychology Brisbane

Having children can be a rewarding and wonderful experience – but it can also leave parents feeling tired, drained, exasperated and confused as to what to do or where to go next.

How can a Child and Family Psychologist help?

If you are concerned about your child or their behaviour, counselling by an experienced child and family psychologist can help. Each member of our team is experienced in treating children and adolescents with a wide range of issues, such as:

  • Depression
  • Being bullied
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Problems at school
  • Grief and loss
  • Adjustment disorder
  • Separation anxiety
  • Family relationships (separation and divorce, improving family communication, and supporting blended families)
  • Adolescents feeling lost or directionless about their lives and their future (Adolescent life coaching).

All sessions ensure confidentiality, and a duty of care, that involves risk assessments for self-harm, child abuse and suicide.

We understand the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach, and may work with or refer you and your child to another health professional, such as a behavioural optometrist or occupational therapist, to ensure the very best in overall support and treatment.

To make an appointment with one of our highly skilled child and family psychologists, call our Mt Gravatt clinic on (07) 3088 5422, or our Loganholme clinic on (07) 3067 9129.
