Parenting Support

The child and adolescent psychologists at Young Minds Network appreciate that parenting can be very challenging at times.

Parenting is full of wonderful surprises at each and every developmental stage. However, new parents often struggle with differentiating between emotional and behavioural difficulties and deliberate naughty behaviour. Experienced parents are sometimes challenged by the differences between their first and subsequent children.

Many of our experienced child psychologists have received specific facilitator training in parenting strategies known to produce results. Some of these include well known programs such as: Circle of Security, Triple P Parenting and 1-2-3 Magic.  Your psychologist will be more then happy to help you develop a parenting approach the is easy to use in your home environment.

Our approach will help you:

  • Learn to understand your child;
  • Learn ways to manage unhelpful behaviour;
  • Coach your child to develop skills that will increase their confidence;
  • Create a calm and safe environment where family members can thrive;
  • Develop a positive relationship with your child.

Access to a paediatric occupational therapist or speech pathology is available at all our Brisbane sites and may be recommended in some cases.
