Therapy for Children
Kids of all ages encounter changes, challenges and stages throughout their childhood that can relate to family, emotions, or learning at school. Kids can be quite fragile when they experience certain changes in their life and to their routine.
As parents you want the best for your child, and want them to feel comfortable, calm and that they can be themselves. The Creating Change team of psychologists are experts in talking and interacting with children assisting them to cope, process their feelings, and teach them the skills they require. We are an inclusive practice and always work with parents & guardians throughout the therapy process, explaining the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of how the therapy journey will unfold. We also work with teachers if required – should your child need assistance with learning – if they’re feeling anxious or they need motivating.
Whatever their needs, whatever your concerns, we are here to help and move you as a family towards feeling calm, connected and in control.
