Children's & Family Psychology on the Sunshine Coast

Childhood or Kids psychology sessions assists in all aspects of development. Often we just associate seeing a psychologist with being depressed or anxious, when in fact psychologists help so much in children with shyness, attention problems and developmental delays.  Emotional, physical, mental and social developmental areas are all addressed.  

Why choose to see our Sunshine Coast Child Psychologists?

Our team are highly experienced working with children and teens. 

3 convenient locations

We offer counselling and psychology sessions to kids and teens in our Sunshine Coast clinics in CALOUNDRA, MOOLOOLABA & Noosa clinics (as well as online). 

Friendly and Down-to-earth team

We want you to feel very comfortable. When we work with children, we are warm, friendly, and age-appropriate. We also include everyone.

Children think and behave very differently to adults so the form of therapy and expertise of the Psychologist is also very different.

There are a number of different techniques that can be used with children to deal with mental health conditions and other psychological and cognitive behavioural issues. These tend to be used to help children to develop emotional regulation, resilience, confidence, relaxation and relationship skills.

Children and even teenagers tend to prefer expressive styles of therapy over talk therapies, especially those that include elements of play and creativity such as:

  • puppet role playing
  • sand play with figurines
  • arts/crafts
  • feelings cards and music
  • writing and drawing.
