Young people who find themselves in trouble with the law require clear assessment and recommendations that are not only appropriate but inclusive of important historical and background issues; that are practical and achievable within the context of an individual’s circumstances; and that recognise and include the various systems sharing the duty of care.

Shona Innes Psychology has an overarching goal for teens and young adults to achieve balanced, sensible and safe treatment for issues that include: pornography, sex offending, stalking, violent behaviour, ‘hooning’, unsafe and culpable driving, substance abuse, internet offences and many other criminal activities.

At Shona Innes Psychology we also work with and support personnel, psychologists and case managers to provide support for those commonly referred to as ‘system kids’ – the young people who are caught in a cycle of reoffending.

Experienced in dealing with offenders with disabilities, developmental  and cognitive disorders, Shona Innes Psychology provides clear assessment and recommendations for outcomes that are specific for individual needs and circumstances, while inclusive of the relevant legal and community systems. Where appropriate, this will also include a Trauma-Informed lens
