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

Childhood – 5 to 12 years: Often children present their parents with the challenge of both emotional and behavioural difficulties, simultaneously.

Joy Tai is a child psychologist who can help identify the issues at hand, and strategies to manage them, to help children and their families.

Counselling Approach: Joey is experienced in working with children, youth and young adults.
