Sometimes families need a bit of extra help. Psychologists can be a great guide through all sorts of situations – from family tragedies and other high-stress situations, to everyday issues such as anxiety, anger management, or compulsive disorders. A good psychologist will consult with both the family and the child, and work with you all to come up with ways to navigate life and deal with those hurdles along the way.
These professional services below focus on kids, family or they simply wish to be recognised as child friendly. Brisbane is full of psychology services that not only welcome kids, but find very creative ways to include them.
