Working with children and adolescents requires a therapist who has a thorough knowledge of human development and the skills to interpret how young clients make sense of the world.
The therapists at Young Minds Health & Development Network have been trained in a range of techniques to ensure they are able to cultivate a warm and nurturing environment so that children and adolescents feel that they can talk openly and honestly about their thoughts and feelings.
As a professional service our practitioners will almost certainly work closely with parents, and at times schools, to help promote healthy family relationships and support young people through change.
It’s important to also note that the process of therapy including confidentiality and the limits of confidentiality are explained to individuals and parents at the commencement of services so that everyone is informed about how things work.

Many parents find it difficult to find a child-friendly way to tell their children about coming to see a psychologist. So here are a few ideas that may be helpful to anyone who finds themselves in this position.
Fortunately, the psychologists at Young Minds have a keen interest in children and know just how much they like to be creative, enjoy stories and play games. We know that for children to learn, they need to feel relaxed in the environment and have fun. Just for the record, most of us are incredibly good at games like UNO and certainly enjoy a good match!
If you feel you need additional support speaking to your child about attending an appointment, or your child is overly anxious about coming, please feel free to contact your psychologist to discuss additional strategies.
