Our Services

At Jamieson Psychology (formerly Inner Twist) we use a variety of evidence-based assessments and various treatments to ensure that you, your child, and family receive the very best available care.

Supporting parents and caregivers

Sometimes parents, and entire families, need a little help. This can take the form of helping to build a stronger relationship between you and your child through improving parent-child communication, helping parents manage stressors, helping to understand how to draw out positive behaviours and set appropriate boundaries, improve parenting skills in a particular area (e.g., morning/afternoon routines, toilet training, sleep routines etc.,) repairing trust after it has been broken, managing the online world (e.g., reducing the amount of time spent online, online safety etc.) or strategies to understand how to best support your child.

Supporting young people

When supporting a young person, it is important that a trusting relationship develops; that a young person feels they will be supported, not only with evidence-based strategies, but with warmth, compassion and understanding. Fiona works within the context of developmental periods, social, emotional and cognitive needs, and school/family influences to understand issues and to draw out a young person's strengths.

Supporting gender diversity

Those in the LGBTQI+ community are at an increased risk of mental health challenges than those not. Whether a young person has only just started to question their gender to supporting a young person, and their family, understand the psychological impact of transitioning towards a different gender or non-binary identity, knowledge of this process and how to navigate social and emotional challenges are important to how the young person will adjust.
