When a child or student is exposed to an extreme tragedy, or is overwhelmed by overwhelming stress, an educational psychologist is a skilled responder.
In response to requests from teachers and head teachers, we now offer child psychology behavioural support which is designed to be a tailored around pupils with deeper mental health and wellbeing issues, in either primary or secondary level education.
Common issues that children seeking therapy have faced include: divorce, abuse, mental illness, death of a loved one, or exposure to substance addiction. Symptoms that commonly warrant intervention or therapy include: obsessive behavior, social isolation, poor diminished academic performance, anxiety, anger, sleep disorders, aggression or incontinence.
Our certified practitioner is focused on evaluating children or students who are experiencing emotional difficulties and providing a treatment plan. Rooted in counseling and psychological theories, our child psychologists and neuroscientists are experts on how to help children manage depression, mental illness and developmental challenges.
While intervention and therapy may seem scary to parents, a child psychologist helps parents understand that it is normal for a child to have emotional ups and downs and that therapy is a positive, healthy step.
