ADOLESCENT SERVICES

A Happier, Healthier You

Adolescence is a time when young people strive to find their own identities, come to terms with their changing bodies, changing relationships and develop the ability to critically reason.  It is also a time of confusion, stress and conflict as they start to take on adult roles and responsibilities and rely more on peers for support.


Using a range of therapies including art therapy, we will help you “re-frame” your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles.  Read further to learn how we work with specific conditions.

 

Counselling Children and Teens

Specialist care for children and teens by experienced clinicians

Evolving Minds are highly qualified professionals specifically trained to provide counselling to children and teens with a range of presentations including, depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, sexual abuse, challenging behaviour including oppositional defiant disorder, self-harm, conduct disorder, gaming addiction and body image.

Behaviour tells us so much and while children and teens can present with a range of maladpative behavours, with the right help these can often be turned around. 

When providing therapy to children and teens, Evolving Minds uses a range of evidence based therapies such as talking therapy, play therapy, craft, art therapy, puppets, story-telling and imaginative role-play.  Each session is tailored to meet the needs of each child or teen and is done so respectfully.


​Using a range of therapies, Evolving Minds help by “re-framing” reactions and providing valuable tools to help children and teens cope with life’s obstacles.  We will also help children, teens and their parents understand the role of challenging behaviour and how to implement more positive coping strategies.

 

Evolving Minds takes a collaborative approach when working with children, teens and families by helping parents and carers gain an understanding of their child's behaviour, so they can help them react more positively.  We are also happy to work with schools, day care and other health professionals and pride ourselves on going the extra mile.
