Get the right help for your child to thrive physically and mentally.
Being a child or teen isn’t always easy. Sometimes kids can feel anxious or worried about the things going on in their lives, have difficulty dealing with turbulent emotions, or overwhelmed with the world around them, just like adults.
When your child needs someone to talk to and support to work through their difficulties, Better Self Psychology can help.
Perhaps your child has been labelled ‘picky’ or ‘too sensitive’, when they may just be struggling to cope with a challenge.
Conveniently located on Hutt Street in the CBD, Better Self is a youth-focused psychology practice who work closely with parents and schools to help children overcome their difficulties and achieve their potential.
They know that problems can start at any age and continue into adulthood, which is why they work with children as young as six years, through to teens and adults.
Their team of clinical psychologists have the insights, knowledge and means to help children manage the stresses of life at any age, and provide children with the lifelong tools and skills needed to overcome their issues.
They can help with issues relating to anxiety, depression, behaviour management, adjustment disorders, social skills and difficulties, OCD and autism, amongst other concerns.
Psychologist Dr Lauren Frensham is the newest member of the Better Self team and is currently available for appointments. With a passion for working with children, adolescents and adults, Lauren can help address a range of concerns including depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, school difficulties, stress management and behaviour management.
Lauren endeavours to provide clients and their families with the skills to move toward positive change and optimise wellbeing, with each treatment tailored to individual needs and goals. Lauren works within a cognitive behavioural therapy framework amongst other therapies.
Better Self provide individual therapy and offer rebates through a GP issued Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP), private health insurance, or the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
