A Family-Focused, Holistic Approach to Children’s Mental Health

 

At Dolphin Tribe, we care deeply about our patients and families. Whether you are a child, teen or new mum struggling with your mental health, we can help. We know that mental health challenges can be confronting, so we offer holistic treatment coupled with compassion, giving you hope and kindness on your journey towards a happy, healthy, thriving life. 

 

Treatment Based on Evidence, Driven by Compassion 

 

Dolphin Tribe offers evidence-based assessment, diagnosis and holistic treatment for children, adolescents and perinatal mums in Sydney, Australia. Because mental health affects the entire family, we believe the whole family should be involved in treatment with the end goal of supportive relationships, resilience and enhanced wellbeing.

Passionate About Early Intervention

 

We live in a world where the quickest way is seen as the best - unfortunately, this has led to cutting corners in child and adolescent mental health. Let’s change this! Sending children to a psychiatrist for assessment early leads to the best possible outcomes – help us make early intervention the norm in mental health – there is no other way, there are no shortcuts!

 

Emphasis on Psychotherapy 

 

Our treatment is based on various effective styles of psychotherapy (talk therapy) and our psychiatrist prescribes medication only when appropriate and clinically necessary. By providing nurturing care to new mothers, infants and children, we help our patients build strong foundations of mental wellbeing that will continue throughout their lifespan and into future generations.

 

Services

Infant and Perinatal

Pregnancy and childbirth is a time of enormous change. If you are finding it difficult to adjust to the demands of pregnancy and parenthood, we can help. Under our specialist care, we hope you’ll be able to enjoy your motherhood journey and build a healthy, trusting relationship with your baby.

Child and Adolescent

In a family-focused setting, our therapists take a holistic and respectful approach to child and adolescent mental health. We provide accurate assessments and tailored psychotherapy with a strong focus on early intervention.

Psychotherapy

Talk therapy is an effective way to help people articulate their thoughts so they can understand complex and challenging emotions. This holistic treatment comes in many forms and always offers patients a safe, supportive and respectful space.

Child Assessments

Dolphin Tribe is passionate about early intervention and the first step is an accurate assessment. We use evidence-based techniques to get a full understanding of your child’s cognitive and behavioural abilities followed by recommendations for effective treatment.
