Child Aware counselling service consists of experienced psychologists and mental health accredited social workers who specialise in assisting children, young people and families to overcome symptoms by using evidence based interventions and best practice. Child Aware psychologists and mental health accredited social workers employ a flexible, collaborative and client-centred approach to therapy incorporating a variety of focused psychological strategies and evidence-based therapies, depending on each client's personal goals and needs.
Sessions are 50 minutes in duration and typically occur weekly. The first appointment (intake appointment) is mostly spent with the parent (depending on the age of the child/adolescent) which enables the psychologist/mental health accredited social worker to identify the presenting issues, gather a developmental history and develop goals for treatment.
