Founded by Dr Anna Cohen and Amanda Frawley in 2000, Kids and Co offers psychological assessment and treatments for a wide range of childhood emotional, behavioural and family problems.

Our Philosophy and Values
We believe that children and young people can make change in their lives to better fulfil their potential and grow into happy and healthy adults. We take a family approach in our work with you, acknowledging the importance of the young person’s relationships and contextual experiences, as well as the influence of behavioural and emotional problems on family members.
At Kids & Co we value your views of your current experiences, which is why we work closely with you to make effective and efficient change. Importantly, we begin by developing a personalised treatment plan that will best suit your personal and family needs, and which is researched to be the most effective form of intervention for your particular situation.
To ensure the highest standard of care, all our clinical psychologists have extensive experience and training in child and adolescent mental health, child protection and working with adults, young people, children and families.
