Our Perth psychological services are tailored to meet the needs of our clients and their goals. A general description of services follows:
At the Child Wellbeing Centre we aim to help children learn to make positive choices and to develop an awareness of the needs of others around them. We can provide support on a range of problems including:
reducing challenging behaviours
toilet training difficulties
Our child behavioural psychologists can work directly with families, children and young people and schools to develop strategies that will make a difference. Parent training is also available and individually tailored to meet the needs of families.
Counselling For Young People & Children
Our counselling service in Perth allows us to work through issues in a supportive and non-judgemental process. At the Child Wellbeing Centre we are able to provide counselling to children, and young people on a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, grief and loss.
We empower our clients (both children and young people) to set goals and to make the changes that are important to them.
Developmental and Learning Difficulties
Our staff are able to offer assessment and support on a range of issues which impact on children’s learning, including:
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Gifted and talented children
Specific Learning Difficulties
Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Social Skill and Self Esteem Groups
Children learn from other children. The Child Wellbeing Centre offers regular social skill groups to teach children how to make and keep friends.
Sessions are fun but challenging. All children and young people entering programs need to be assessed for suitability. Please contact the Centre for more information about our Friendship Clubs.
Our staff are able to liaise with schools and support the development of individual learning plans where required.
Single Session Therapy
As an alternative to ongoing therapy, our staff are able to provide single session therapy on specific concerns. Single session therapy is where families meet with a psychologist to focus on immediate solutions to a concern.
Single session therapy draws on a strength based approach and is suitable for families needing some gentle advice on how to resolve issues. An additional benefit of single session therapy at the Child Wellbeing Centre is also a shorter wait-list time before being able to be seen.
Clients are of course welcome to continue on with more regular therapy approaches.
Referrals for Psychology are only necessary if associated with the Allied Health Better Outcomes in Mental Health Care via your GP; or through a Paediatrician for the Helping Children with Autism Medicare or Better Start rebates. Please contact the Child Wellbeing Centre, Midland for more information.
