What Can Child and Adolescent Psychologists Help With?
Psychology is the study of the human mind, encompassing our thoughts, actions, and behaviors. Child and Adolescent Psychologists employ various therapeutic methods to help young people overcome their challenges and regain control of their lives.
Our child and adolescent team offers a range of services, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychotherapy, Psychometric Testing, Neuropsychology, Health Psychology, and Educational Psychology.
While many of our Psychologists and Psychotherapists engage in similar work, Psychologists often focus on thought patterns, whereas Psychotherapists often delve into past emotions and feelings. If you're unsure about which professional your child or teenager should see, our clinical advisors can provide guidance on the available options and suggest the best fit for your child's needs.

- Anxiety, phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Behavioral issues
- Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

What to Expect from a Child and Adolescent Psychology Appointment?
Prior to the session, you may receive questionnaires to complete, and your psychologist may request school reports to gain a comprehensive understanding of your child's situation. Psychometric tests may also be administered before or during the sessions to gain insights into the specific areas your child is struggling with. These tests are nothing to worry about, and their purpose is to ensure a thorough assessment of your child's needs.
When you book your child's appointment, we will guide you through all these elements, and our team is available to answer any questions you may have at any stage of the process.
The number, frequency, and duration of psychology appointments will vary depending on the reasons for seeking assistance. For example, CBT sessions may be scheduled weekly and may involve homework assignments to reinforce learning between sessions. Educational assessments, on the other hand, may be conducted as a one-time assessment, with a recommendation for additional therapy sessions if necessary.
