What does Psychology & Counselling look like?

A clinical psychologist is a highly trained professional who is able to assess, diagnose and treat people with behavioural, emotional, and mental health issues. Counselling is one of the treatment options that they can provide. Other options include art or play therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and family therapy.

Processes

Helping you decide if we are a good match

Psychological and counselling support requires a high level of trust and connection between therapist and client. We offer new clients the opportunity to talk to our psychologist by phone as the first step, to ensure we can provide the support you are seeking.

Scheduling an initial consultation

If you feel we can indeed help, the next step is to organise an initial consultation. (Often parents attend without the child) This is an information sharing session. You may have been asked to complete a questionnaire or to share any previous reports, which also helps with this part of the process. The psychologist will then be able to advise you on the intervention that will best suit your child.

Planning and implementing intervention

The support offered could involve weekly sessions, or consultation sessions when needed. It may also involve an assessment process or collaboration with other people in the child or young person’s life. Approaches may include counselling, play-based therapy, family therapy or cognitive behavioural therapy; our psychologist has many tools in her tool box.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What skills can my child develop through psychological counselling?

Psychological counselling can help your child develop a range of crucial skills. These include emotional regulation, stress management, social skills, and problem-solving abilities. At Kaleidoscope Therapy Centre, our child psychologists use evidence-based therapeutic techniques to nurture these skills, enhancing your child’s ability to cope with life’s challenges and improving their interpersonal relationships.

What kind of assessments can a child psychologist perform in Singapore?

In Singapore, a child psychologist can perform a variety of assessments to understand a child’s cognitive, emotional, and social development. These can include IQ tests, assessments for learning difficulties or ADHD, social and emotional evaluations, and more. The results can guide personalised treatment strategies and provide valuable insights for parents and educators.

How can psychological counselling support my child's development?

Psychological counselling supports your child’s development by addressing emotional, behavioural, and cognitive challenges that might interfere with their well-being and progression. A child psychologist uses therapeutic strategies to help children understand their feelings, manage stress, improve social skills, and solve problems. Over time, these skills can significantly enhance your child’s overall development and well-being.

When does my child need to see a psychologist in Singapore?

It may be helpful to consult a psychologist if your child is experiencing persistent difficulties in behaviour, mood, learning, or social interactions that interfere with their daily life. If your child is frequently upset, struggling at school, having trouble making friends, or undergoing a significant life transition, a psychologist can provide support and strategies to help them navigate these challenges.

How can I support my child's psychological needs at home?

Parents play an integral role in supporting their child’s psychological needs. Encouraging open communication, maintaining routines, offering emotional support, and modelling healthy coping strategies are all beneficial. The child psychologists at Kaleidoscope Therapy Centre also work closely with parents, providing advice and strategies to reinforce the skills being taught in therapy, enhancing the benefits of counselling.

What can I expect from a typical child counselling session at Kaleidoscope Therapy Centre?

A typical counselling session at Kaleidoscope Therapy Centre involves a range of activities tailored to your child’s unique needs. This may include talk therapy, play therapy, cognitive-behavioural activities, or relaxation exercises. Our child psychologists aim to create a safe and supportive environment where your child feels comfortable expressing their thoughts and feelings, while they develop key skills for managing their challenges.

How is the approach to child psychology unique in Singapore?

In Singapore, child psychology is influenced by a blend of Eastern and Western perspectives, acknowledging the city-state’s diverse cultural milieu. Psychologists like those at Kaleidoscope Therapy Centre incorporate an understanding of local cultural nuances and expectations in their therapeutic approach, providing care that respects the unique societal and familial contexts of each child.
