Individual Therapy

Therapy is tailored to each individual child or young adult to ensure the best fit. Sometimes, family or parent involvement is recommended to ensure greatest success, especially with younger children. Therapy approaches include Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment (ACT), and play-based therapy approaches.

Group Therapy

The Secret Agent Society small group programme helps children 8-12 years to identify their emotions, develop coping strategies, and navigate social relationships. It also helps parents identify ways to support their children through this process. This group may also be available on an individual basis.

Parental Support

Support is available for parents who may be struggling with managing challenging behaviours or sleep. Principles from the Positive Parenting Programme (Triple P) and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) are used to enable parents to feel more confident in managing their children's behaviours.

Teletherapy

Teletherapy, or virtual sessions are available online for families who are out of town, or may prefer virtual sessions. Read more about teletherapy.

Family Therapy

Family Therapy is designed to address patterns of interaction that create and maintain problems. The goal of family therapy is to improve communication and interaction, and highlight appropriate boundaries to create a healthier family structure and improve family functioning.

Supervision

Supervision is available for registered and trainee psychologists. Consultation about therapy with tics and Tourette's is also available on request.
