Child Depression – Angela Bromfield

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

Child Depression: Childhood depression occurs when a child feels persistent feelings of sadness which interferes with their level of functioning (eg. socialising, school, interests and family life). Symptoms vary from individual to individual but may include: intense feelings of sadness, withdrawal from social activities, loss of appetite, fatigue, change in sleep patterns, difficulty concentrating, irritability, physical complaints (stomach pains) and thoughts of suicide.

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. 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 $195 for a standard consult ($240 for initial appointment).
