"Young people and families have a wealth of their own insight and skills - sometimes they need help to unlock them. "
My name is Dr Helen Care and I am a Clinical Psychologist. I work with children, teens and families when they find that there is something holding them back.
I know from experience with my own children, and the hundreds I have worked with,that when problems arise they can have a huge impact on the young person's self-esteem, motivation and well being - not to mention the effects on the rest of the family.
I have worked with my team to provide free guides and information, under Resources tab, that I hope will be helpful for you and your family as you work through challenges.
