Hi , My 16 year old daughter is having ‘Stage Fright’ issues, which I think is a progression from self esteem issues. Would this be something you can work with her on? Also she has been very resistant to talking to a professional in the past.
How much would the sessions cost?
Thank You Di

Hi, my friend is becoming concerned that her 2yr old is not talking, he has reached all other milestones, his hearing and comprehension is good and he has been heard speaking when alone in his room but will not talk to anyone. Just wondering at what age can a child be diagnosed with selective mutism and hoping to find someone in Wollongong area who deals with this problem, thanks.

Hi,
We have been having a lot of problems with our son regarding separation anxiety. He is 4 and attends Kindy (daycare) 2 days per week and has done since he was 2. He has pretty much always cried when dropping him off, however it has gotten a lot worse lately, to the point of screaming uncontrollably and the teachers having to hold him so he won’t run after me. The crying starts the night before going and as soon as he wakes in the morning. The hard part is that he has a great time when he is there, it’s just the drop off. It has become a nightmare for us and i don’t know what else to do. I am getting very concerned that it will keep getting worse. Is this something you can help with as we are running out of things we can do. Thank you.
