Childhood is a key time in our social and emotional development. Most parents will encounter a few bumps in the road as their child moves through the course of childhood.
However, if you are particularly concerned about your child it may be helpful to engage the assistance of aPsychologist. This can involve individual therapy with your child or in some instances family therapy may be beneficial.
Our psychologists have experience helping children and their families with childhood issues such as anxiety, low mood, challenging behaviours, emotion regulation difficulties and adjustment problems.
Where relevant, we can also work with parents helping them to develop effective parenting skills to manage difficulties with their children. These skills can help parents to feel more in control as they navigate parenthood, as well as help improve children’s emotional well-being and reduce challenging behaviours.
Brookvale Psychology provides a safe and supportive environment to assess and treat your child, including working with parents on behaviour management and emotion coaching techniques.
