Do you simply need some 'how to' with your own, couple relationship or family difficulties? Our selected experienced team of Psychologist can support you, your child or teenager.

At Child and Family Psychology Brisbane, experienced psychologists are commited to providing scientifically validated interventions for infant to teen issues and adult/family issues including personal stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, and more. Please enquire or read on to find out more about us and see if we can support you with Counselling or other tailored interventions.


Children and teenagers experience emotional issues such as anxiety, stress and depression just as adult do. Child psychologists provide therapy/intervention sessions that are helpful  to help alleviate symptoms and manage family challenges by providing tools during these times.  

Common challenging child behaviours/concerns include:

  • Tantrums 
  • Arguing with parents
  • Attention Seeking
  • School refusal
  • Anxiety
  • Fighting with siblings     
  • Social skills difficulties
  • Refusal to go to sleep
  • Being defiant or aggressive
  • Food fussiness
  • Separation anxiety
  • Being disruptive   in class    
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Hyperactivity
  • Being too sensitive or reactive
  • Crying easily
  • Teenage defiance
  • or risky behaviour 
  • Learning difficulties
  • Toilet training difficulties
  • Homework battles
  • Special Needs support

Parenting is very demanding and most satisfying, yet can leave us perplexed at times on how to move forward with multiple challenges. Often children present their parents with the challenge of both emotional and behavioural difficulties, simultaneously.  To differentiate ‘naughty’ behaviour from behaviour that is signalling a child’s emotional distress can be hard to determine. With support from our experienced psychologists and information, parents can discover the best way to manage each. A child psychologist can help identify the issues at hand and help families through providing support and information in individual child appointments, joint parent-child appointments, as well as family therapy.
