Challenges for Children (7 – 14 years)

Growing up isn’t always easy. Children can experience a range of social, emotional, cognitive and physical challenges that impact on their wellbeing, and their capacity to grow and develop as healthy and happy individuals. Sometimes the difficulties that one child faces can also impact on the wellbeing of the whole family.

Anxiety, social skills, emotion regulation and learning difficulties are some of the common issues that children and adolescents experience. Getting help early, and supporting a young person to develop positive coping skills, can make a big difference to their current wellbeing and development.

Inge De Jong works with young people aged between 7 and 14 years at Long Gallery Psychologists. She is committed to understanding the individual child, developing a caring and supportive relationship, and working with the child and their family in positive ways that are tailored to meet the child’s needs and personality.
