Children and teenagers

Child psychologists observe how a child interacts with their parents, themselves, and the world, to understand their mental development and growth.  Play therapy is the best tool, where younger children can express their emotions, improve their communication, and solve problems. Teenagers are often caught up in peer pressure, which can cause problems such as anxiety and depression.  Psychologists specialising in adolescents are well versed in providing the gentle care and mindful therapy. They provide teens with the tools to assist them as they mature, by helping them develop stronger reasoning skills and thinking things through logically.
