Children & Families

Marsden Clinical Psychology provides assessment and treatment services to children and their families across emotional, behavioural and social areas. This includes anxiety and other emotions, behavioural difficulties, ADHD, autism, food and eating problems, school and learning and family therapy. We understand that as a parent it can be stressful to know your child is struggling and it may place stress on the family unit. Dr. Marsden can provide guidance and support through early intervention and therapy to improve and maintain the emotional wellbeing for you, your child and family.
