Child and Adolescent Anxiety – Angela Bromfield

Angela Bromfield      Quals: B Sc (Hons Psych), B Ed (Primary), M Ed Psych.

Child and Adolescent Anxiety: Anxiety occurs when an individual has intense feelings of worry, tension and physical changes i.e. raised heart rate. Everyone feels anxious from time to time. This behaviour is common in children and most learn how to cope with feelings of anxiety without support. If the anxiety is impacting on the child leading their lives then it may be time to get help.

Counselling Approach: When working with clients, Angela only uses evidence-based therapies including: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solutions Focused Therapy and Play Therapy. With young clients games may be used to reinforce concepts and keep young clients engaged in the therapeutic process. Situations that anxiety is experienced will be explored during counseling and more helpful ways of dealing with anxious thoughts and feelings taught. When working with children Angela involves parents in the sessions as much as possible so that any new skills learnt can be worked on at home.

Fees:  Sliding Scale depending on circumstances, usually $180 for a standard consult ($220 for initial appointment).
