Compassionate | Collaborative | Creative

At Lotus and Fern, psychological services are delivered in a compassionate, collaborative and creative manner that honours children and adolescents’ unique strengths and experiences. The goal is to support young people to develop the self-confidence, resilience and coping skills to live fulfilling lives, respond adaptively to any difficulties and work towards their potential.

Albert Einstein once said: “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” Let’s work alongside our young people to help them discover and celebrate their very own kind of genius.


Exploring young peoples’ strengths and difficulties to find a positive way forward.  


Supporting young people to make positive changes to the areas that matter to them and their families.


A place where Verena shares thoughts about a broad range of areas related to caring for children and adolescents.
