Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and behaviour. It allows us to understand how others think, feel and act.

How our psychologists can help

A psychologist can help others in a variety of ways from investigating factors that drive a teenager’s behaviour to understanding how a child utilises language to navigate their world.

Our Bright Door psychologists can provide psychological consultation and assessment if a child is experiencing difficulty with participating in classroom activities, building meaningful relationships or experiencing anxiety or stress at school. Our psychologist can provide evidence-based strategies that may help a child or young person overcome challenges and difficulties in the classroom, at home or in the community. The psychologist can assist with the following:

  • Building meaningful relationships
  • Social skills
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • School refusal
  • Emotional regulation
  • Play and turn-taking abilities
  • Relationships and attachments within family systems
  • Confidence building
