The Child Wellbeing Centre provides a comprehensive range of therapy services to children and adolescents needing support for social and emotional difficulties. In addition to providing regular therapy options, we are now offering single session therapy for families who may need some targeted advice or brief intervention.
What happens in Single Therapy Sessions?
One of our psychologists will meet with you and your family to discuss the concern that brought you to the Centre. They will use this session to let everyone talk about the problem, identify solutions that have been tried and help you identify the changes that need to be made.
Single session therapy often involves the psychologist providing information on child development and on the referring reason. On occasion, it may also be about linking families in with other community support services that may be useful.
The single session therapy approach draws on the current strengths of the family in working out how to get things back on track.
Our psychologist will follow you up a month after this session to check in with you. It may be that more regular therapy is required. In which case they will discuss with you the options available to you in our Centre. They may also talk to you about other programs in our Centre that may be beneficial to your child.
Who could benefit from Single Therapy?
Single session therapy isn’t for everyone. Single session therapy works best for families who may need some gentle advice about how to resolve issues.
Single session therapy may be useful for families who may not be able to attend sessions regularly.
One of the benefits is that there is a much shorter waiting period for session that our standard waiting time. We are able to offer sessions within one to two weeks.
Do I need a referral?
No, you are welcome to contact the centre directly to enquire about an appointment.
