Wesley Kids is a child and family mental health service, where children and their families can access support and understanding in a safe and friendly environment.

We support children up to 12 years of age and their families living in the Brisbane and Gold Coast areas. Our experienced team of mental health and allied health professionals provides:

  • one on one counselling and play therapy for children aged 3 - 12 years
  • family therapy
  • group programs for children and parents
  • school workshops and small group programs for students and parents.

 

Our group programs

Wesley Kids' group programs provide a rich environment in which children and their parents and carers can feel safe, secure and supported while learning skills and reconnecting with each other. Each is a time-limited program with a specific focus. If you are unsure which of our services would be most helpful for you and your child, please call 5625 1901 or contact us to discuss your needs. 

Grief and Loss group

We offer an eight week program for children aged 6 - 11 years who have experienced significant loss or change in their lives. This program draws on the latest evidence to deliver age appropriate grief and loss support to children and their families.

Tuning Into Kids parenting group

Parents of primary school aged children may be interested in our six week emotion coaching program. Parents can use emotion coaching to support their children to regulate emotions and manage stressful events.

Creative Arts group

Join our four week program where you can experience the therapeutic benefits of engaging in the arts. Through engaging in drumming, clay work, circus skills and more, children and their families are guided to use the joyful medium of arts to explore themselves, learn skills and build resilience and wellbeing. This is play-based learning for emotional wellbeing at its best.

Our approach

Wesley Kids is a friendly, child-centred service where we strive to hear everything from a child's point of view.  Our skilled clinicians adopt child-centred communication styles while providing evidence-based mental health care and social and emotional wellbeing support to children and their families. 

Parents can expect a non-judgemental atmosphere, with a shared understanding that everyone is doing the very best they can. We help you find the skills you need to work through challenges and turn them into meaningful learning experiences with your child. 

 

How much does it cost?

As a non-profit service, we aim to make mental health care as affordable as possible for families. Some families may be able to use NDIS funding for our services, others will find an array of low cost and bulk-billed payment options. Please call us on 5625 1901 or contact our friendly team to book an appointment, register for a group, or to find out more information.
