Child psychologist, Essendon

Buckley Consulting Group has an experienced team of child psychologists at its Essendon clinic to help our younger clients – from early childhood through to adolescence – along with their families in dealing with emotional and mental health issues that can impact their lives.

Today’s young people live in a fast-paced, technology-fuelled world. They’re resilient and resourceful but sometimes things go wrong and they, just like adults, can struggle to cope. Problems can include self-esteem issues, bullying, depression, separation anxiety, sleep problems and emotional outbursts.

Child and adolescent services are a strong focus for Buckley Consulting Group’s Essendon psychologists and we provide comprehensive assessment, treatment and counselling for our clients in a supportive manner to help them find their feet again.

We realise it can be scary to ask for help for both youth and parents, but help is readily available and once you take that first step it can make a huge difference.

Our therapy strategies often involve meaningful input from parents and caregivers. The inclusion of parents and families in treatment is often beneficial when working with children. Providing parenting help and advice, and arming parents with valuable tools to support their children can enhance treatment outcomes and result in sustained improvements over time.
