The lives of children are also filled with challenges from time to time, just like that of adults. Talk to a child psychologist if your child is having persistent mood or behaviour problems. Among the most common reasons for consulting a child psychologist are: anger management issues, frequent temper tantrums, low-mood or depression, frequent crying, anxiety (generalised or specific), self-harming behaviour, low self-esteem, the child experienced trauma (simple or complex) or grief/bereavement, communication problems, social exclusion/social phobia, experienced a family break-up, sleeping difficulties, bed-wetting/nightmares or eating problems.

Select Healthy Mind therapists aim to explore each child's unique needs and situation to better understand what issues are causing them problems. During assessment a thorough history and background check is made by speaking with the child directly and also by gaining the crucial input and understanding that only their loved ones (be it parents or guardians) can bring. Only then is a treatment plan formulated to help the child move forward more positively. Our therapy is targeted towards treating the individual child within the family system... not to infringe or explore the whole family dynamic.

At Select we feel it extremely important for parents and guardians to acknowledge 'therapy time' is their child's time... not a time to bring the previous weeks problems along to air or punish the child. The purpose of therapy is to build the child's confidence and independence to know that they will be safe and can cope whatever the situation.
