About Us

Steve Rushton started Changes Child Psychology home visit service in 2012 to offer children and families practical skill building where the problems were occurring without charging an additional call out fee (which was standard practice at the time). Steve found over time that it was much easier to build rapport and teach kids practical social and emotional skills in their own environment compared to a clinic room.

In late 2012 Changes needed another like minded child psychologist to help – Rob joined the team and in early 2013 Bianca and then the team grew over time with many more highly skilled psychologists to it’s current level of 13 child psychologists in 2017.

Changes is still focused on providing practical skill building and therapy in homes schools and child care centres for children aged 2 to 17 years old and their parents. We provide some assessments however our focus is treatment and we will only recommend formal assessments if and when it will help a child’s functioning in a practical way.

Many of our clients also report that they like our team’s solution focused approach to therapy rather than diagnosis and labeling. Many parents told us they were initially not sure about getting support for their child because they didn’t want them diagnosed or labeled with a ‘permanent’ problem or impairment. All our psychologists work on developing children’s and parents awareness skills and perseverance in the face of common and not so common life challenges as we believe most challenges can be overcome or at the very least minimised with practice professional support.
