Child Behaviour

All young children can be naughty, defiant and impulsive from time to time, which is perfectly normal. However, some children have extremely difficult and challenging behaviours.

Children’s Feelings

We can help you if you need support to help your child manage distressing feelings such as sadness, worry, and anger.  These feelings lead to the dreaded temper tantrums.

Developmental Issues

It is common for some children to take more time than others to develop emotional, behavioural or social skills. Our child psychologists can bring clarity and offer evidence-based guidance.

Separation Anxiety

Our work in separation anxiety, also known as attachment issues, is grounded in the understanding that your children need you to be their safe base. 

Educational Assessments

We can assess IQ and also conduct other educational  achievement testing as a means of identifying learning difficulties such as dyslexia, in addition to identifying giftedness

Adolescent Issues

Navigating the journey from adolescence to adulthood can be difficult to say the least. Our psychologists and therapists have helped many young people in making this transition.
