Our core values
At childpsych we believe in:
- Professionalism - only scientifically proven psychological approaches are used.
- Education - parents and children are informed about their condition so that they understand their needs now and in the future.
- Interdependence - our interventions aim to move children and their family towards healthier functioning. Our goal is not to promote dependence on psychologists but to teach parents and children skills for managing their own conditions which includes when to ask for help.
- Commitment - children and adolescents improve in therapy when their psychologist is warm, caring and committed to them.
Why choose childpsych?
- We're a specialist practice - we specialise in children, adolescents and family issues. That's all we do.
- Employees not contractors! - Our psychologists are employees not contractors. Did you know that childpsych staff got together one weekend and painted the consultation rooms! Our staff are committed to childpsych and we only hire staff who are prepared to be legally accountable for their performance.
- Accountability and commitment - Our psychologists undergo regular performance appraisals - we evaluate our psychologists through formal performance appraisal processes that require a high standard of care.
- A professional psychology practice - Our psychologists work for a professional service firm, not renting rooms under the one "banner" - we value our staff and support them through resourcing, formal training and supervision. Our staff are highly qualified and experienced - noticed the number of psychologists with Masters degrees or higher or the number of psychologists who have been teachers in the past?
- We work with the "whole psychology" of the child - that's why we're called childpsych, short for child psychology. If the child or adolescent has an anxiety problem and a weight management problem, we can help with both areas. We work closely with professionals such as General Practitioners and Paediatricians as well as Speech-Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists and Behavioural Optometrists to name a few.
- The child comes first - we go out of our way to ensure the child overcomes their difficulties as quickly as possible. We will speak with school staff, other family members and any other significant person, to ensure that everyone knows how to assist in the child's recovery.
- Wide variety of skills -we have skills in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of childhood learning problems, emotional and behavioural and health related problems.
- Professionalism - we will not treat your child or adolescent if we feel that our services are not needed. If we are unable to help you we will assist you with locating a more suitable professional.
