Our psychologists are passionate about tailoring therapy to a child’s developmental level. From pre-schoolers to teenagers, our psychologists present therapies to young people in imaginative and non-threatening ways to help create a safe place for self-expression. Our psychologists have a strong interest in helping children not only overcome personal challenges and adversity, but also in learning how to achieve their full potential.
