Early Intervention:  Is so important. Research has shown that early intervention makes a difference in a child’s mental development. Thus, early intervention and individual therapy enables the child to face their fears and concerns so that address the challenges that life throws at them aand be able to bounce back.  Give your child the best gift possible- An oportunity to be resilient and enjoy life!

COOL KIDS PROGRAM 

The Cool Kids Program is a world renowed cognitive behavioural therapy program developed at Macquarie University to teach children and parents skills that address anxiety disorders. The orginial program has been adapted to suit the learning style and challenges that arise for children who also have an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The program is offered in both a group format and on an individual basis

The program focuses on teaching children and parents skills to manage anxiety in everyday situations. These skills include:

Relaxation.

Parenting strategies that encourage brave behaviours.

Identifying and using realistic thoughts.

Facing fears.

Building independence and increasing confidence.

To determine the type of program best suited to your child, you are invited to attend an individual session. This session must be attended by both you and your child.

Give your child every oportunity to be able to enjoy life. 

The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his/her future by merely changing his/her attitude.” Oprah Winffrey
