Integrated Support for Children and Families
Sometimes our children need an extra hand to manoeuvre through the obstacles of growing up. Maybe you are having concerns over your child’s behaviour, maybe they seem down, angry or anxious, or are having problems making friends or learning? At times it is hard to figure out what is being communicated.
At the Family Medicine Center we offer an integrated assessment, evaluation and psychotherapeutic service with on- going support for the family as well as the child or young person.
Our assessment and evaluation service is conducted by an experienced Psychologist that conducts testing for ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Social and Emotional Assessment, and Developmental Disorders and Bariatric Surgery evaluations.
Psychotherapy can help resource a child to face circumstances like bereavements, illness, divorce or trauma. It creates a unique space for a child to understand and process his or her feelings in order to better face the challenges of growing up.
If you are concerned about your child please get in touch. We have a confidential, non-judgemental and family centred approach.
