Child Psychology in Spotswood
At Mind Up we recognise the importance of providing treatment in their early stages of life. You and your children will be provided with age-appropriate strategies and interventions to help them cope with their emotional difficulties and relate better with their family and friends.
Common presentations in children that may warrant psychological support
- Excessive anxiety or worry at school or home environments.
- Low mood and depressive symptoms.
- Fluctuations in mood that cause concern or disturb the child’s day-to-day functioning.
- Shifts in behaviour due to adjustment challenges (i.e. new school, family changes).
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or ritualistic behaviours.
- Emotion regulation difficulties.
- Trauma related behavioural changes.
Children can experience a range of challenges including managing difficult transitions such as parental divorce or other issues such as low self-esteem, social & learning difficulties, low self confidence and feelings of abandonment.
At Mind Up, we offer a caring and safe environment for your child to explore these challenges using a range of interventions depending on their needs.
