Looking for an NDIS Psychologist in Adelaide? Our psychologists know that to build therapeutic relationships with their clients, they need to adapt to their clients and move away from traditional neurotypical approaches. Our provisional psychologists love supporting NDIS participants of all ages and presentations, including early intervention, primary school children, adolescents, adults and families, and warmly welcome each client with enthusiasm.
They take an affirming approach toward supporting neurodivergent people, led by the assumption that they do not have a disorder which needs to be “fixed,” but rather a natural variation in the brain which comes with a different profile of strengths. They recognise the unique challenges that people living with disability face, and can assist with anxiety, depression, stress, grief and loss, life adjustment issues, relationship problems, self-esteem, body-image and sexuality concerns.
They believe that in order to best support neurodivergent children, their entire environment should be considered. Their work often involves the explicit teaching of emotions and the provision of appropriate tools to manage how they are feeling, in turn, targeting behaviours of concern.This may include connecting with multidisciplinary service providers such as Speech-language Pathologists and Occupational Therapists. We visit homes and schools and any other relevant environment.
Please contact us today to discuss your needs and to be matched with the provisional psychologist with an interest and skills to meet your needs.
