Child and Adolescent Trauma – Joey Tai

Joey Tai     Quals: BA Psych (hons), Master of Clinical Psychology.

Child and Adolescent Trauma: Unfortunately, no matter how we try to protect them, children and adolescents sometimes experience traumatic events. If the child or adolescent does not effectively process and manage this trauma, it can have severely debilitating effects on their level of functioning and overall quality of life. Trauma can range from abuse (emotional, verbal, sexual or physical) to witnessing other traumatic events (eg flood, fire, car accident). Professional help from a trained psychologist can help the young person buffer against the negative effects of trauma and to help them improve their quality of life.

Counselling Approach: In order to achieve therapeutic progress, there needs to be trust developed between the therapist and the client. This is particularly crucial in trauma victims, as their sense of trust has been negatively impacted. By using the therapeutic relationship to provide a positive learning experience, Joey is then able to go deeper to help the child or adolescent work through many of the emotions which have been not properly managed and processed. The aim of therapy is to allow the client to experience a greater confidence in themselves as well as their surroundings; the processing of their emotions being a crucial supporting factor.

Play Therapy – Joey Tai

Joey Tai     Quals: BA Psych (hons), Master of Clinical Psychology.

Play Therapy: Children who experience emotional or psychological distress are often hesitant, unwilling or simply unable to communicate their innermost fears, insecurities or emotions. In my experience, I find that children who attend an appointment with a psychologist seem to assume that they are either meeting with an authority figure (such as a principal or police officer) or a medical physician (such as a dentist or GP). As such, they are nervous, fearful and reserved. Play therapy is an excellent form of therapy as it helps to recreate a safe environment for the child, in which he/she can comfortably “be themselves”.

Counselling Approach: Counselling Strategy – Once in this safe and secure environment, I am then able to observe and understand the underlying dynamics that the child experiences in his relationships with his family and friends. The child is open to a more ‘natural’ inquisition to his/her inner world and true shifts in perception can occur. I am then also able to give feedback to the parent on what intervention or changes are necessary to help the child.

Panic Disorder – Joey Tai

Joey Tai     Quals: BA Psych (hons), Master of Clinical Psychology.

Panic Disorder:  If you have panic attacks (such as feeling faint, nauseous or have difficulty breathing for no explainable reason), you would know that this condition can be very stressful and debilitating. Someone who has frequent panic attacks might not be able to enjoy their life as they avoid certain places, events or situations for fear of having a panic attack there and then.

Panic disorder can be symptomatic of deeper psychological and emotional difficulties within a person. Seeing a psychologist can not only help you to manage these panic attacks, but to address the underlying issues which are contributing to the disorder.

Counselling Approach: Joey adopts an open approach to dealing with panic disorder – he focuses on the whole psychological makeup of a person rather than just the external symptoms. This usually includes an exploration of some of the unconscious turmoil within the individual, and seeking to address and improve on these internal struggles. Joey utilises a range of different techniques and strategies to manage the panic disorder so that the individual is able to remain functional during the therapy process. Sessions with Joey are also relaxed and non-judgmental in nature.

Personality Disorders – Joey Tai

Joey Tai     Quals: BA Psych (hons), Master of Clinical Psychology.

Personality Disorders: Narcissistic Personality Disorder affects 1% of the population. The term Narcissistic is originally derived from the mythical character Narcissus, who saw his own reflection in the river and fell in love with himself as a result. He was fixated on himself and his own beauty and thus was unable to have any meaningful relationships with anyone else.

People who have Narcissistic Personality Disorders are similar – they have a preoccupation with themselves, and their focus is on maintaining their perfect perception of themselves. They come across as extremely entitled or grandiose; and will constantly put others down, with little or no ability to empathise. This is of course, highly dysfunctional and unrealistic and in turn, will impact anyone who tries to start or maintain a relationship with them.

Counselling Approach: Joey Tai is a Clinical Psychologist with extensive knowledge in the area of Narcissistic Personality Disorder – one of the diagnoses which a majority of psychologists regularly avoid treating. He has a keen interest in working with people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, or with supporting those who are living with or having to interact with such an individual on a regular basis. Joey aims to help you to understand more about the underlying factors which cause someone to have this personality type, as well as how to improve your relationship.
