We are here to help support children, young people and their families deal with issues they may be having trouble dealing with.
You may have noticed a change in your child’s behaviour over time or that they have always struggled in certain situations. You may have a good idea of what's causing them to behave this way, or not at all. It can be a stressful time for everyone in the family, and you may not know how to deal with the situation.
Regardless of your situation, it could help to tell someone you trust or ask for support. We are here to help.
Issues that we can help with:
Anxiety or panic attacks
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome
Behavioural or conduct problems
Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)
Depression and low mood
Difficulties at home, with friends, or problems at school
Issues with food and eating such as anorexia, bulimia, or Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Psychosis (hearing voices or seeing things)
These are only a few examples, and your child may be dealing with other complicated issues that are not mentioned above. Please talk to us if you are concerned about your child's mental health.
