Parent Support

Our expert team of mental health professionals work with you to create a holistic and thorough understanding of your child, teen or young adult and their world, including their family/carer system.

Parenting for Mental Health

Based on Kim Golding’s Foundations for Attachment Program we help Victorian parents develop an understanding of their child’s emotional development, build therapeutic parenting skills and practice consistent self care.

Art Therapy

Our Mildura Art Therapists will work with you and your child to improve psychological health and discover coping mechanisms using art pscyhotherapy.

Family Therapy

We strongly advocate the use of family therapy to build or repair family relationships and develop positive and helpful ways of interacting with your child, teen or young adults. Our expert family therapists will assist with any challenges that your family may be facing, helping to develop effective resolution skills.

Psychological Assessments

Our experienced psychologists offer assessments of psychological functioning for children aged 6 and up. We offer Cognitive (Intelligence) Testing, Literacy and Numeracy Testing, and personality assessments (Personality Assessment Inventory).

Psychological Treatments

Our Mildura psychologists have vast experience using therapeutic interventions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Functional Recovery, Art Therapy and Sensorimotor (Body Based) Psychotherapy.

ADHD Assessment

Is your child hyperactive or inattentive? Are you wondering if your child might have ADHD? Our clinicians offer ADHD assessments and ongoing therapy for children and adolescents in Mildura.

Autism Assessment

Have you ever wondered if your child has autism or do some of their behaviours make you think they could be on the spectrum? Has your GP or paediatrician asked for an ASD Assessment? Our professionals can undertake autism assessments at our Mildura clinic.
