Children, Adolescents and Parenting

Being a parent today is challenging but we are here to help. We provide psychological services for children, adolescents and parents to help create happy families who understand each other's needs.

Our male psychologist Dave Clarke has a comprehensive background in child and adolescent issues, and has worked in mainstream schools as well as adolescent residential care for many years. His comprehensive paediatric background gives him the knowledge and experience to support you and your child or teenager. Dave uses Choice Theory and other frameworks to formulate solutions to challenging behaviour.

Some of the most common challenges facing children and their parents today include:

All Ripple Psychologists take a holistic approach to assisting children and their families, and will expect you the parent or carer to play an active part in working with us to establish solutions. Where appropriate, and with your express permission, liaison with the child's school and its support staff will be explored as well - the wealth of knowledge regarding your child that schools can contribute is invaluable.
