Helping you to understand how and why you act and feel the way you do.
Our approach looks at how we can learn new behaviours and skills and turn them into habits. Understanding Minds is led by psychologist Dr Craig Wright, who brings together highly qualified health and education specialists with experience in supporting children, youth, and adults with difficulties in learning, behaviour, and mental health.
Our approach is genuine, understanding, evidence-based and empowering. We need to understand all of the person, not just the diagnosis to support behaviour and learning. Understanding the person involves understanding other influences including their family and environment. We promote family/partner involvement and focus on attitudes and strategies that are specific to you and/or your child. It is essential for us that you receive personalised advice and support.
