What do we do?
As we adapt to client need, what we do is quite diverse and responsive…so we provide some general ideas here for your information and curiosity. If what you need is not listed here, please contact us and let us know what you are interested in. Once we’ve had a conversation, if we can’t help you, we will put you on to someone who can. Let us know what you are thinking…
Sometimes pathways forward can be a little hard to find...
Where to start?
We start with thinking all sorts of human behaviour is normal, but not necessarily average.
We think there is always a new story in old stories.
The smallest details are important.
Variety in what children see and enjoy is valued.
Seasons and time
Some good things in life we need to wait for...for the right time and the right place.
Looking at the world from many different angles often gives us the chance to find different approaches
Light and shade
We think light and shade compliment each other, in the natural world, and in human behaviour.
We help kids thrive, not just survive.
Go the distance
We'll go a long way for kids if required.
Consultation & Clinical Supervision
Our consulting services focus on our clients’ most critical issues and potential.
Whether working with other school psychologists, school counsellors, individuals, family groups, staff groups, educational settings or educational systems, we work on practical, effective strategy and pathways across all contexts and geographies. We bring deep, functional expertise, but are known for our fun approach to work. We love what we do and we love bringing success to our clients. Why not organize a 15 minute Skype / video-conference to trial what consultation like this feels like…?
Assessment & Report Preparation
When people think of educational and developmental psychology they often think of testing of intelligence, behaviour, academic achievement, disorders etc. We actually do all of this for children and young people, and you can view the type of assessment instruments we have at our disposal here.
However, we do more than this….including evaluating inclusive education programs, individualized education plans, differentiation of programs, and whole of school approaches to inclusivity. Keep an eye on our blog and ‘What you need’ web pages for more information.
Individuals & Families
At Continuum Psychology, we pride ourselves on being clear at the outset of our relationship with individuals and family groups about what we can offer. We assist you to find the help you need with educational, developmental and behavioural management concerns. If we can’t help, we generally know someone who can help you develop your own pathway of gaining the help you need. If you’re not sure what you need, we provide a free initial 15 minute telephone consultation to give you some ideas. As we are very busy, we have no need to create work…if we know there is a simpler pathway than the one we provide, we advise you quickly and clearly.
Review & Planning
Educationally, our areas of expertise are inclusivity, access, individualized tracking and planning, positive behaviour, context-tailored solutions & programmes, professional practice, in-house PD using action research, and least restrictive participation and environment.
If you are looking for external expert advice and / or guidance in the above areas, organize a video-conference or telephone chat today to explore the possibility of us working together.

Educational systems and professionals who have made use of our offerings in professional development are happy to provide references if required.
Early intervention, preschool, primary, secondary and tertiary settings…we are experienced and at home in any educational setting.
