Supporting children’s development and wellbeing
Some children struggle with emotional and social development, which can impact on learning and friendships. Our experienced psychologists work with children and families using evidence-based therapies to address concerns such as:
- Anxiety, depression and low self-esteem
- Building resilience
- Poor social skills
- Behaviour and anger management
- Difficulties making transitions
- Dealing with family issues, separation and divorce
We utilise a number of evidence-based therapies in our psychological therapy program including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Brief Solutions and Play Therapy to help children build skills and confidence.
Learning Links professionals offer online and centre-based support.
Our team also works closely with early childhood settings and schools to deliver specialist individual and group programs to support children’s social emotional wellbeing. This can be facilitated by both registered and provisionally registered psychologists, with specialist interventions targeting areas such as anxiety, depression, social skills and interactions and anger or behaviour management.
We offer counselling services to parents and family members as required, to assist with a range of concerns.
We can help families with:
- Parenting issues
- Relationship issues
Online Telehealth Services

Online sessions are as effective as face-to-face support and can offer a range of benefits, including:
- A flexible and convenient way for your child to receive continued support, without the need for travel
- A familiar and comfortable environment for your child to build a strong relationship with their psychologist
- Opportunities for the psychologist to use your child’s interests to engage them in sessions
- Different ways for parents to be more involved and gain strategies for providing support in the home
