Helping Parents and Children Navigate Difficult Issues

Welcome to Connected Psychology, where we have a focus on child and adolescent counselling and can provide an objective perspective in safe, caring space that is confidential and just focussed on you and your child. One of our main goals is to help children build the social skills and self-regulation skills they need to be successful start to school and in life.


Our services include:

  • One on one sessions with parent or child
  • Family sessions
  • Consultations via Skype
  • Play therapy
  • School Readiness Group
  • Social Skills Groups for school aged children


For children, counselling  will depend upon the age and the abilities of the child, particularly their verbal ability.  Primarily I use play therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy. There is a lot of evidence to support both play therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy as interventions for a number of issues.


The teen years are a special time of life where there are many physical, mental and social changes.  While this is exciting for many it also presents many challenges.  I can help teens and parents work through some of the challenges presented at this time.


We are experienced in a number of evidence based therapies which include:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy looks at the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviours.  Though this process you learn how to challenge your thoughts and change how you feel.
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy- Learn how to accept things you can’t change and how to commit to action for the things you can change. This type of therapy helps put you in touch with your goals and the things that give your life meaning, and then help you learn how to take action towards those goals.
  • Positive Psychology interventions which looks at helping people identify their strenghts and build upon them.
  • Relaxation training- learn to understand and manage stress through various physical and mental techniques.
  • Mindfulness- learn mindfulness skills, or ‘paying attention to the moment’, as a way to help you engage with the present.  This can be a powerful tool to help you deal with a range of issues including worrying and anxiety, as you learn to redirect your attention away from troubling thoughts or experiences.
  • Play therapy is less directive but gives children the opportunity to express their stories and emotions without words. It helps children learn to express feelings without words and gives insight into issues.  


The practice ensures you will feel comfortable, with friendly, experienced staff.
