Psychology – Children, Adolescents, Families
Julie Power graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (Honours) from The University of Queensland and Master of Psychology (Health) from The University of Southern Queensland. She has over 15 years’ experience working with children, young people and their families. Julie has a particular interest in identifying targeted, positive behaviour supports for children and young people experiencing complex, social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Julie understands the importance of providing a family-centred service that aims to build parent confidence in meeting the needs of all their family members. This may include:
- Developing your child’s emotional understanding and social use of language, something that is essential for friendships and interpersonal relationships;
- Developing your child’s confidence and resilience to social problems;
- Developing your understanding of the internal and external influences on your child’s behaviour problems, and works with you to identify targeted strategies to reduce the likelihood that your child’s behaviour problems occur;
- Develop your child’s understanding of the way their thinking patterns influence how they feel, and what they do, and improve their abilities to apply helpful thinking to problems they may encounter;
- Developing your child’s daily living skills, including toileting, sleep and mealtimes; and/or
- Improving your child’s dynamic thinking abilities so that they are better able to apply helpful strategies to cope with life’s stressors and to solve social problems.
Julie works collaboratively with families, educators and other health and teaching professionals.
