Challenging Behaviour
Evolving Minds Counselling: Looking Underneath The Behaviour

Understanding and addressing challenging behaviours in children and adolescents is often multifaceted as often these are misinterpreted, leading to labels like "naughty" or "out of control".  

It's important to remember challenging behaviour can stem from a variety of factors, making it crucial to identify triggers. While conditions like abuse, ADHD, anxiety, autism, depression, and trauma can contribute, other factors such as bullying, sensory issues or difficulty regulating emotions may also be in play. 

At Evolving Minds Counselling, our dedicated team of clinicians take a holistic approach when working with children and adolescents. We also think it important to collaborate closely with families and schools.


Through a blend of innovative techniques—ranging from Play Therapy to Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Art Therapy and Mindfulness—we aim to empower children and adolescents to take back control of their emotions.

If your child could benefit from our therapeutic support, don't hesitate to reach out to the Evolving Minds Team. Call us at 02 8519 4197 or conveniently book an appointment through our online form.
