Let's work together to make empowering changes that will benefit the whole family
Having a child with behavioural issues is stressful. Some days, it feels like you’re spinning out of control, like the ground your walking on is unstable and it could swallow you up any minute.
Other kids, or maybe even some of your own seem to have ease with life, whilst your other is running riot and loosing the plot more often than seems reasonable. The thought never leaves the back of your mind that maybe something else is going on with them.
The meltdowns and outbursts over the smallest things, like putting shoes on or doing their hair, brushing their teeth or getting dressed is a relentless everyday occurrence. It feels impossible to calm them down.
Meal times can be a nightmare too. The things that worked yesterday haven’t worked today, and once again you’ve spent hours preparing wholesome meals for the kids that they haven’t touched!
You don’t like to admit it, but your child rules the house. You may have read all the books or been involved in parenting courses but you still can’t seem to get a handle on their behaviour.

But these are masters at masking their symptoms. At kinder or school, they go under the radar because they are usually trying very hard to do the right thing and blend in. However, as soon as they are in a safe place (the car, home) they let it all out, and you cop the brunt of their stressful day.
When my son received his diagnosis, I had mixed feelings.
I threw myself into the research and found a great support network. Overall, now he is a happy kid with a great life.
Whether it's stress, anxiety, depression, hyperactivity, digestive complaints, sleep issues or frequent viral infections and colds and flu's. I work closely with a team of professionals to ensure the best therapeutic outcomes.
Being a parent with a challenging child is stressful and it can trigger our own anxieties and needs for control. But, most of all you feel sad because you feel like you are failing them. You worry about their future and don’t want them to struggle in life.
