A child psychologist provides treatment and support for the behavioural and developmental issues impacting children and their families. Paediatric or child psychologists are specialists in developmental psychology, helping children not only cope with challenges but giving them tools for emotional, mental, and social development.


Some of the cases when families seek out a child psychologist include:

  • When a child struggles to navigate their own behaviours and emotions

  • When a child is recovering from a brain injury or stroke

  • When a child begins to heal after grief or trauma

  • When a child grapples with learning difficulties or education-related stress

  • When a child experiences bullying


The process of seeing a child psychologist or paediatric psychologist begins with an assessment that involves both the child and the adults in their lives. Working together as a group makes caring for children unique to providing psychological care for adults. The assessment will take into consideration the concerns of parents or guardians, teachers, and other vital care providers. Once the psychologist has a better understanding of the child’s experience, we draw up a treatment plan specifically for your child. Treatment will including working directly with the child and finding ways for parents to help the child cope, such as responding to a child’s behaviours or emotions in most helpful ways.
