The Child Psychology Service

We are a team of child psychologists and speech therapists, located across New Zealand, who work closely together. The thing that binds us together as a team is the goal of using psychology to improve the welfare, well-being, learning and quality of life of children, young people and their families.

We share the same values, principles and philosophy. We all follow the same proven processes and systems, which means no matter where you are in the country you can be assured of the same consistent service for you and your child. It’s important to us that everything we do with you and your child needs to be useful and have a practical and purposeful outcome. Finding practical, realistic support for you and your child, that you can fit into your busy life is how we best help.  

We always put your child’s well-being and success first. We start with their strengths and what works, it’s less daunting and more effective that way. This gives them (and you) the understanding and resilience to tackle whatever life throws at them with confidence. In turn, giving you peace of mind.

All of the psychologists here at The Child Psychology Service are registered with the New Zealand Psychologists Board and hold a current practising certificate. This means we’re bound to the practising guidance of the New Zealand Psychologists Board. We’re also members of both the New Zealand Psychological Society and the British Psychological Society.

How We've Helped

Dr Emma Woodward -

Hi, I’m Dr Emma. As well as being a child psychologist, I’m a mum to four boys. This means that I’m really in touch with the realities of having kids, the problems they face and how the school system in New Zealand works (and no, my kids aren’t always perfectly behaved!).

I’ve been working with children, their families and schools for over 20 years. In fact, apart from a brief spell as a baker in a supermarket in the mid 90’s, it’s been my whole career. When I set up The Child Psychology Service in 2014 it meant I was free to focus on what I truly believe and help strengthen families by providing support focused on building well-being and resilience. 

I’ve been lucky enough to meet wonderful, experienced and like-minded practitioners along the way and I now feel fortunate to be able to say that I call these practitioners, friends and colleagues.
