Jemima Koles | Child Psychologist

BSc(Psych), PGDipPsych, MPsych (Ed & Dev), Educational and Developmental Psychologist, MAPS

As an Educational and Developmental Psychologist my therapeutic style is person centred, warm and collaborative. My goal is to support the process of healthy change and growth within young people and their families. I provide therapy and psychometric assessment for children, adolescents, and young adults.

I have worked in private practice as a registered Psychologist since 2013, during which I have gained experience supporting a broad range of challenges life can present.

Areas of professional interest include:

  • Autism Spectrum
  • ADHD
  • Neurodiversity
  • Learning difficulties
  • Relational trauma
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Social anxiety
  • School anxiety
  • Depression
  • Highly sensitive people
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

Parenting is a challenging job, I work with parents to build their parenting skills, increase confidence, and develop family connections. I endeavour to gain an understanding of your, or your family’s, current circumstance and provide both practical strategies and insight into possible underlying factors. I focus on providing tailored support and promote positive change.

Therapeutic techniques include therapeutic play, cognitive behaviour therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, interpersonal therapy and emotion focussed therapy. My practice is informed by principles of warmth, connection, respect, and inclusion.
