Do you simply need some support with your couple relationship, or family difficulties? Our experienced team of Psychologists  or counselors in South East Brisbane can help. We provide support for infant to teen issues, adults, and families, as well as personal stress, anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, grief, life transitions and more.  


Children and teenagers can 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.  




Parenting is very demanding and most satisfying, yet can leave us perplexed at times on how to move forward.  Often children present with the challenge of both emotional and behavioral difficulties, simultaneously.  To differentiate ‘naughty’ behavior from behavior that is signaling a child’s emotional distress can be hard to determine. With support from our experienced psychologists, 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.

ADHD /auditory processing/ learning difficulties, which is it?

Teasing out the symptoms of each among the well meaning advice and recommendation from family, friends, teachers and professionals can be a challenge. It requires an in depth understanding of these challenges and an understanding of the impact of these. Often children with these difficulties also develop secondary issues e.g anxiety, learned helplessness, self esteem issue to name just a few.

Understanding and addressing the core is helpful so teasing the primary from the secondary issues is important.   Intervening with all the issues that present them selves and when, or in what order can be the next quandary parents face.  Which should we address first? Can we do this all at once..probably not. What will give us the biggest bang for our limited dollars. Thousands of dollars can be easily spent on various interventions of varying benefit and credibility. Many families have other children and their schedules to consider as well as the child's own schedule, space and  energy to benefit from the  interventions. Seek out professional support with an experienced developmental and educational psychologist. They are trained in this to support you through the journey.

Relationships and Their Challenges

All relationships face difficulties. Sometimes we are able to resolve our issues with hard work and other times our problems may resolve over time. If you've had troubles in the past and have managed to resolve these - that is fantastic! However, if you have tried to problem solve and your attempts have been unsuccessful - couples or marriage counselling might be the way forward. Often, we get stuck in patterns of communication, behaviour and interactions in our relationship, and a couple’s counsellor can assist you in recognising these patterns, getting unstuck, and moving forward. The step towards booking in for an appointment may seem large - it involves admitting that things are not going well. This can be a scary and painful process. To make this step easier for you, we are happy to speak to you on the phone before booking an appointment. This way you can ask questions and determine whether our clinic is a good match for you. Our couple’s counsellors give couples a safe, non-judgemental and supportive space to explore difficulties and work towards a better relationship - one where both partners feel heard, understood and where they are working as a team towards a satisfying future.

 The concepts of grief and loss are most often associated with the loss of a person, people or perhaps an animal with whom we have established an emotional connection. During these periods individuals typically experience a range of emotional cognitive and social distress.  These may include withdrawal from others, anger, prolonged feelings of sadness or depression, guilt, feelings of emptiness, insecurity and fear about their future. However, grief and loss may be experienced at other stages of life.  For individuals who have worked towards a long-term career, the thought of retirement may arouse feelings of anxiety, fear and thoughts of an uncertain future.  The result of such stressors may be conflict within the home environment, pressure on relationships and reduced quality of life. A combination of client and solution focused intervention will help individuals to manage the transition from one stage of life to the next. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) provides an effective platform for managing the grief and loss and the thoughts and emotions associated with major life changes, allowing the individual to embrace all the new opportunities and challenges of their life. psychologist.

New blog post- Acute Stress

Acute Stress Disorder can really interfere with an individual’s ability to enjoy life.  Have you (or anyone you know) experienced directly being involved in a traumatic event, personally witnessed a traumatic event that has occurred to someone else, learned that a life-threatening event has occurred to a close family member or friend, repeated and extreme exposure to aversive details of traumatic events. 

The individual with Acute Stress Disorder may notice that a number of areas in their life are being impacted such as, impaired social and interpersonal relationships, sleep disturbances, reduced motivation, social withdrawal, avoidance, substance misuse or abuse, increased aggression, separation/divorce and increased work related absenteeism.  


If you feel that you (or someone close to you) may be experiencing the symptoms of Acute Stress Disorder please feel free to make an appointment with one of our experienced psychologists.  Call, email or book online via the Healthkit link.
