Psychology for Children — The Life Resolutions Parents’ Guide
What Can A Child Psychologist Help With?
Our Life Resolutions Essendon child psychologists know that there are many reasons families may reach out and seek support. Children’s therapists specialize in understanding growth and development and can help support your family through difficult behavioral problems, emotional regulation concerns, and family conflicts.
Many families also choose to visit a psychologist because they feel their child or teenager could benefit from chatting to someone outside the family — sometimes, young people may feel more comfortable talking to a professional about difficult issues.
How Do I Know If My Child Should See A Psychologist?
If your child is experiencing issues at home or at school that impact their ability to learn, create relationships, or engage with family members, the support of a psychologist can help address any underlying issues and concerns.
If you notice sudden or gradual changes in your child’s behavior, such as difficulty sleeping, eating, or reluctance to go to school, this is another sign that the support of a psychologist might benefit your family.
Additionally, many parents seek the support of a family psychologist during difficult life events, such as the loss of a family member, separation, or divorce. Children may have trouble processing these situations and chatting to a therapist can help them understand and heal.
What Does A Children’s Psychologist Do?
Depending on the age of the child, appointments with a Life Resolutions Essendon child psychologist will involve a combination of structured play, observation, and conversation.
Additionally, we know that family members are an integral part of the process, so we may also arrange meetings with you to discuss your child’s needs. We’ll support you as you continue to work with your child at home.
