Child & Adolescent Emotional Concerns
If you’re concerned about you child or teenager’s wellbeing, we’re here to help.Children of all ages experience the same range of emotions as adults: happiness, sadness, anger, grief, fear, depression, loneliness and anxiety, but they don’t always have the capacity or understanding of how to ‘be’ with these emotions. They can become overwhelmed and act in ways that even they don’t recognise or even like. It can be beneficial to have somebody your child can work through their emotions and be able to understand how they can learn to respond to each emotion felt in a way that doesn’t cause unnecessary stress or worry to the child.
Guidance & support for healthy development for children and adolescents
For families with a teenager, life can sometimes be difficult to contend with.Hormones, social anxieties and everyday learning can create pressure without the addition of the changing teenage brain. This can lead your adolescent to; acting on impulse, misreading social cues and emotions, engaging in risky or dangerous behaviour. It can become apparent to you as their parent that your teen is struggling with this new way of being. Please be assured this is more common than many parents realise.

Screenings For Mental Health Conditions
Making sure your child receives the right treatment
It may be that you child just needs a little extra support and help with managing their emotions and behaviours. However in some instances it can be beneficial to screen for mental health or developmental conditions too depending on the problems that present.
If additional testing or screening is recommended based on the initial assessment we will guide you through this process to help you make informed decisions about any screening options and subsequent treatments.
Typical conditions we might test for under these circumstances are: Anxiety Disorders, Major Mood Disorders, Personality Disorders and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
