Children, Teens & Adults
Brilliant Minds Psychology is a Springwood based psychology clinic located at 18 Dennis Road, Springwood. We have a team of 6 psychologists and provide psychological services to Children, Adolescents and Adults across the lifespan.
Behind the Name 'Brilliant Minds Psychology'
The inspiration for the clinic's name 'Brilliant Minds Psychology' was due to an interest in positive psychology and also by working with individuals on the autism spectrum and anxiety conditions. Individuals on the autism spectrum continue to be an inspiration - by having brilliance to look at the world in different and uniques ways! Through positive psychology influence, we hold the belief that all individuals can flourish! We also have a special interest in anxiety conditions - we are also a child, teen and adult anxiety clinic.
Children and Adolescents
We work with children and adolescents from 2 - 18 years of age.
We work therapeutically with children and teens. Brilliant Minds Psychology works from the child's perspective and help them learn new ways of thinking, new strategies and help them to find their own solutions. We help parents manage/ learn strategies to manage behaviour problems and also help parents with parenting stress.
The Parenting Hub:
We also work with just the parent especially if you are feeling stressed due to ongoing behaviour or emotional problems that your child may be experiencing. For very young children we often work just with the parents. Many of our psychologists are trained in Triple P (Positive Parenting Program), behaviour, cognitive and attachment based approaches. Working just with the parent, your psychologist can help you learn to manage and understand your child's emotions and behaviours and help reduce parent stress.
