Friendly support and assistance during difficult times.
Youth are a demographic often overlooked, and an age group frequently labelled by treating practitioners as too difficult or complex to engage. Indeed adolescence is a period representing transformation, including episodes of uncertainty and unpredictability. The team at Michael Bilyk & Associates are highly skilled at engaging young people, and through considerable experience working within Youth Justice settings, our team are particularly skilled in assisting young people demonstrating high risk behaviours.
Emphasis is placed on motivational aspects in working with young people, appreciating that it is not uncommon for youth to be pre-contemplative to difficulties that confront them. Our psychologists work closely with young people in exploring emotions, thoughts, behaviours, and considering change.
