COUNSELLING

About

Counselling services, including psychologists and social workers, work with children and their families to provide treatment when children have difficulty with emotions, social functioning or behaviour. 

These services also offer parenting courses and groups for children with anxiety.

What age groups do you see?

Children aged 3 – 12 years.

How can I access your service?

Telephone the Child Health Information Link (CHIL) on 9562 5400 (select option 2).

Where can I access your service?

Our services are provided in Community Health Centres at Camperdown, Canterbury, Croydon, and Marrickville.

Some groups may be offered in other locations.

What should I bring to my first appointment?

Please bring copies (if any) of your child’s:

  • school reports from the last 12 months
  • reports from other health professionals your child has seen (including psychologists, psychiatrists, paediatricians, speech pathologists, and occupational therapists)
  • reports of testing by a school counsellor
  • reports of psychometric (IQ) testing

What can I expect for my appointment?

When you arrive at the Community Health Centre, you will be greeted by the receptionist. This person will let your psychologist or social worker know that you have arrived.

During your appointment your psychologist or social worker will talk to you about the concerns you have for your child. You will also be asked about your child's development.

Your psychologist or social worker might ask you, and maybe your child’s teacher, to fill out a questionnaire or survey.

Who will I meet at my appointment?

You will meet your child’s psychologist or social worker.

Our psychologists are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). For more information visit http://www.ahpra.gov.au
