Brilliant Minds Jobs! Health Professionals Work with Us!
Child & Adolescent Psychology 

 Brilliant Minds Psychology is a small boutique private practice based in Springwood. We work mainly with young children, children and adolescents and their families.  Our small team draws from evidence based interventions to help you and your child through challenging times.  We provide a warm and relaxed therapy atmosphere for our clients.

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), behavioural and attachment based interventions (Circle of Security).  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.
