EMOTIONAL & PSYCHOLOGICAL DEVELOMENT OF CHILDREN

There are numerous circumstances that can take a child’s emotional and psychological development off track.  The following is a list of behaviors that might indicate that a child is suffering emotional difficulties.

•    Regular nightmares and difficulty going to bed/sleep
•    Highly anxious when separating from primary care giver/s such as going to school
•    Difficulty in socialising with other children and participating in group activities
•    Very aggressive with other children/siblings
•    Extreme and regular bouts of sadness and withdrawal
•    Regular experience of feeling overwhelmed with age appropriate tasks

(Please note that the above list is not definitive and is not a replacement for professional help).


Ken Milling conducts his practice from ‘The Lindsay Centre’ in Mount Lawley and has successfully worked with children, from 4 years to adolescence, for over fifteen years.  He has found that children often have a greater capacity for change when they are able to articulate their emotional experience in a safe and ‘containing’ environment.  To this end, it is always necessary for the analyst and primary caregiver/s to function as a team with the aim of getting the child’s development back on track.  The first step in this process is for the primary caregiver/s to organise a preliminary appointment with a qualified therapist who specialises in working with children.

As a Jungian Analyst, registered Psychotherapist and Child Psychotherapist, Ken not only works with children and adolescents but also adults and couples to resolve myriad personal, behavioural and relationship problems.  He believes most strongly in the right of the client to strict confidentiality.

As an Analyst he relies on close attention to and interpretation of dreams and symbolic imagery, and the way this and other thoughts and feelings are expressed by the client.  Attention is focused on the unconscious psychological links between individuals and society, including the cultures of groups and institutions.

Analysis has for its goal the client’s movement toward psychological wholeness and transformation of the personality to the realization of the individual’s potential, which requires coming to terms with the unconscious, its specific structures and their dynamic relation to consciousness.

As a clinical practitioner and supervisor, Ken is committed to ongoing professional development and regularly attend seminars, workshops and lectures.  Additionally, he reads a wide range of journals and texts to ensure that his knowledge remains current.
