There are many reasons why a child or adolescent may benefit from working with a psychologist. Our psychologists work collaboratively with children, adolescents and parents to address behavioural and emotional problems including anxiety, depression and aggression, as well as social skill development, assertiveness, resilience, bullying, emotional management and risk-taking behaviour.
At Bloom, our highly-trained psychologists utilise a range of evidence-based practices, with a strong emphasis on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness. We provide a safe and confidential space for children and adolescents, whilst understanding their unique personal and developmental needs.
Individual counselling sessions typically involve weekly or fortnightly 50-minute appointments.
Bloom is registered to provide services under the Better Access to Mental Health Care initiative. Clients referred under a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan may be eligible for up to 10 treatment sessions per year, subsidised by Medicare.
