This practice uses an integrated approach of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Therapy for children aged 8-18 as well as for young adults. The aim of psychotherapy is to form a connection in which clients feel open, safe, and accepted. This will enable clients to work through their challenges in their every changing world.

 

Psychological educational assessments are administrated on children aged 5-16 years. They can assess a variety of concerns including:

  • School readiness
  • Attention deficit hyperactive disorder
  • Specific learning disorder (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia)
  • Learning barriers
  • Intellectual impairment
  • Emotional difficulties
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

The assessment will indicate whether your child is needing Psychotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Remedial Education or placement at a school that caters for special needs.

Non-directive Play Therapy is also offered to children 4-8 years. The aim of Play Therapy is to help a child to express their emotions, thoughts, wishes and needs. It helps them to understand muddled feelings and allows the therapist to have a glimpse into the inner world.
