Leeanne RyallLeeanne is a registered psychologist focused on children and family issues. She has over 12 years experience in counselling, helping to improve day to day life experiences. Her areas of speciality include working with children who are experiencing difficulties with stress, family and relationship difficulties, bullying, depression, anxiety, grief and trauma.  Also working with parents, families and extended communities where appropriate.

Leeanne believes that children have their own unique experiences and ways of interacting within and understanding the world.  There are many factors which impact on the way a child experiences and interacts within the world, these include their life experiences, developmental age, individual personality and many many more.

Childhood is a time of learning, children watch the world around them and learn through observation and trial and error.  There are a range of issues which may impact on a child’s natural development, including grief and loss, illness, experiences of trauma, sleeping problems and many more and these can lead to behaviours which create difficulties for the child and family.  All children experience sadness, anxiety, self esteem issues, behavioural outburst, it is a part of experiencing life and learning how to interact in the world.  However when these experiences stop a child from engaging in normal day to day life or have ongoing negative impacts on the child and family, then these issues may need to be addressed.
