Not all psychologists can work well with teenagers. Deciding to see a psychologist can feel like a big step, and we understand that you need to feel confident that your teenager is in safe hands. Our adolescent therapists are all clinical psychologists that have completed many years of academic training and supervised work, and have Masters and/or Doctorate degrees in clinical psychology. They have experience working with young people and enjoy engaging this sometimes tricky age group to capitalise on their strengths and interests.
We’re here to help you and your adolescent with whatever difficulties you are experiencing, and we have expertise in treating all forms of anxiety, depression, behavioural and social problems and parenting difficulties. Using only treatments that have been researched and found to work, we implement treatment plans that are practical, positive and tailored especially for your particular teen and family.
Our adolescent psychologists’ areas of specialty include:
- Anxiety including excessive worry & OCD
- Study & HSC stress, including procrastination
- Difficult family relationship
- Coping with bullying
- Adolescent behaviour problems
- Depression, including self-harming
- Coping with separation/divorce or other family problems;
- Low self-esteem or confidence
- Grief & loss
We offer week-day appointments, including after-hours, in our Sydney CBD and Alexandria consultation rooms. We work with clients from Surry Hills, Newtown, Redfern and throughout the inner city region. All of our psychologists are registered to provide Medicare and private health fund rebates.
