You signed up to raise and love your child and you may struggle to also be their advocate and a case manager. During child-focused parent sessions we can assist you to review, prioritise, co-ordinate and draw together your child's support services and leave with a sense of what to action next.  We recommend one session per term to review how your child is progressing and what approach or strategy to try next.  

 

We do not offer: 

- We do not offer diagnostic assessments of neuro-developmental disorders (Autism/ ADHD diagnoses).  Currently we are focusing on providing counseling, therapy, treatment and interventions and capacity building support. Whilst we can provide screening and recommendations about the need for further assessment we will refer your child to our sister services for diagnostic assessments.

- We do not offer cognitive, learning or psychoeducational assessments. Whilst we can provide screening and recommendations about the need for further assessment we will refer your child to our sister services for a full diagnostic assessments.

- We do not offer letters, reports or assessments for court purposes.  This is a specialized area of psychology (forensic psychology) and you will be referred to a more appropriate service if this is the service being sought.
- We do not offer family therapy. We are mindful of the systems in which a young person exists and operates, such as their family system, their school system and incorporate these systems of support into therapy wherever possible. However family therapy is a specialized area and when this approach is suggested we can refer you onto a Family Therapist.
