Expertise in working with complex behaviours

Complex or challenging behaviours are behaviours of concern that cause significant distress or danger to the individual or others. Some examples include:

  • Violent/unsafe behaviours (e.g. head banging, biting, throwing objects)
  • Self-soothing behaviours (e.g. hand-flapping, sensory seeking behaviours)
  • Socially inappropriate behaviours (e.g. masturbation, being over affectionate)

All behaviour is a form of communication. As typically developing children, we develop our nonverbal communication (e.g. waving, pointing) as well as our verbal communication. We learn what behaviours are socially appropriate and which are not.

A child with difficulties with communication may exhibit ‘challenging’ behaviours. They use whatever behaviours they can to communicate and have difficulty identifying which behaviours are socially appropriate.

The child may be communicating through their behaviour:

  • That they don’t like something.
  • That there is too much sensory input and they are in discomfort or pain.
  • Feeling frustrated, confused, or anxious.
  • That they want your attention and engagement.

It can be incredibly frustrating as a parent when typical behavioural strategies aren’t successful with their children, or if their children’s behaviours are impacting on their wellbeing.

At Positive Perceptions Psychology our team of experienced psychologists can help by analysing a child’s particular behaviours in relation to their environment, timing and use. They also provide strategies and train parents to help support positive behaviours and reduce inappropriate behaviours.

Child and Adolescent experts

Child psychology is very different to adult psychology, and practitioners who do not appreciate this may treat a child like a miniature adult, rather than working at the child’s developmental level. Though there is no such guarantee with any service and that’s why it’s important to make sure the psychologist is the right fit before you commit to any services for your child. Which is why we schedule an initial parent-only consultation as the first step. This is your opportunity to meet the psychologist in person, discuss your concerns in detail and confirm it’s a good fit in a relaxed and convenient way, without any obligation to proceed with further appointments for your child. It is because for us your peace of mind matters.

When you bring your child to Positive Perceptions Psychology, you can be assured that you are seeing a practitioner who is highly skilled in engaging with children and getting to their level, rather than expecting them to engage in therapy in an adult manner.

Flexible Appointment Times

We offer Daytime and Afterhours appointments.

We are located in the centre of the Hills District – at Castle Hill, less than 10min walk from the station at Unit 1/251 old Northern Road Castle Hill with hassle free secured parking.

No Waiting Lists

We know that when you call a psychologist, you want help now, not weeks or months from now. We typically arrange appointments at the earliest possible, rather than placing you on a waiting list for months.

Medicare and Private Health Insurance

Medicare rebates can be processed at the time of each session. Initially, you need to pay the full session fee and the rebate is refunded immediately back to your account, which usually reflects within 24 hours.

Registered NDIS Provider

We know you need support at various stages during your NDIS Journey. At Positive Perceptions Psychology we believe that difficult situations are best dealt with experts by your side. That’s why we are available to support you and help you with any advice required during your NDIS approval and thereafter.
