We offer a range of interventions when working with children and adolescents which may include individual therapy; family therapy; parenting advice; assessment.

The Practitioner will consult with both parents prior to meeting with the child/adolescent in order to understand the history both developmentally and contextually. The child/adolescent will then be seen for two sessions individually. Following these sessions a therapeutic plan will be discussed. This may include involvement of parents of individual work with the child/adolescent.


Appointments are available on weekdays, and after hours where necessary.

You do not need to obtain a referral to attend an appointment, however you may wish to obtain a GP Mental Health Care Plan. Please discuss this option when you are making your initial appointment.
