Who wants to help their child overcome challenges and reach their full potential?
Since 2011, our caring and experienced child psychologists have helped over 1,735* children and teenagers with many common emotional, social and learning issues…
Do you think your son or daughter might benefit from some expert help for anxiety or worry?
Or help for other emotional or social issues, such as depression, self-harm, anger or friendship issues?
Are you concerned about bullying, social media use or video game addiction?
Interested in VCE/Educational Coaching to help improve study skills, motivation and organisation?
If you answered yes to any of these, read on to discover if our service might be a good fit for your needs…
Our psychologists have postgraduate training in Educational and Developmental Psychology and experience working in schools and in private practice.
We’ve helped hundreds of children and teenagers overcome many common challenges, improve learning outcomes and develop valuable life skills…
And – if possible – we would love to help you, too!
What types of issues can we help with?
Here are the main ones:
• Anxiety or excessive worry
• Learning difficulties
• Study skills and motivation
• Anger or difficult behaviour
• Social skills
• Depression or grief
• Social media use
• Video game addiction
• Parenting strategies
• School readiness
• Choosing a school
But our small team of child psychologists only have a limited number of appointments available each week – particularly the after school time slots…
And we take care to make sure each client we see is genuinely suited to our specific skills and experience…
So for this reason we are unable to help with any of the following issues:
• Severe mental health issues
• Global intellectual delay
• Autistic Spectrum Disorder*
• Legal reports
(*Except for high-functioning ASD / Asperger’s Syndrome.)
This allows us to devote our full attention and care to those clients who are most likely to benefit from our help.
So if you think our service might be the right choice for you?
We’d love to hear from you. 🤗
The first step is to book an initial parent consultation with a psychologist to discuss your needs in detail and get the right advice for your child.

Does your child suffer from excessive worry or anxiety? Is this interfering with their ability to learn, play and develop? Is anxiety stopping your child from reaching their full potential? We offer evidence-based counselling to help overcome anxiety.
Does your child need help with any personal challenges? Are they depressed? Do they have problems managing emotions such as anger? Counselling can help with depression, social problems, bullying, self-esteem, anger and difficult behaviour.
Would you like help with parenting, navigating the school system or dealing with any challenging aspects of family life? We will provide you with support, counselling and action plans so you can help your kids learn to overcome challenges at school, at home and in life.
Is your child reaching their full potential at school? Are they disorganised? Low in motivation? Need help with study skills or stress management? Educational coaching teaches vital skills for success including goal setting, planning, time management, exam and study skills.
Does your child struggle with reading, spelling or writing? Or perhaps they have trouble with numbers, symbols and maths? If so, they may suffer from a learning disorder such as dyslexia or dyscalculia. Expert testing will reveal the information you need to help them achieve their best.
Is your child truly fulfilling their learning potential? Perhaps they are hitting ‘roadblocks’ in certain areas? Or just coasting along? Would you like to find out the reasons why they learn the way they do and how to improve their learning effectiveness?
Starting school is a big step… In Victoria, your child must turn five by the 30th of April in the year they start school. School readiness assessment helps you make an informed decision about starting school and may support an early entry application.
Is your child bored in class but easily able to complete the work? Do they enjoy taking on more challenging work than their classmates? Are they frustrated with the ‘slow’ pace of teaching at school? If so, they might be showing signs of intellectual giftedness.
