Nurtured Heart Approach Australia


Lead by Clinical Psychologist Bart Traynor, Nurtured Heart Approach Australia is dedicated to changing the way we look at challenging and intense behaviours, and committed to providing effective tools to parents, and carers, and educators with children and young people.Parents have commonly sought the NHA for assistance with their intense children (often with diagnoses such as ADHD,ODD and ASD). NHA is also useful for people experiencing difficulties with self esteem, confidence and assertiveness.

We offer private sessions for individuals, parents and their intense kids, and have custom built consult and observation rooms. We also offer a variety of training and workshop opportunities such as 1 day introductory workshops, to 6 week parenting courses. At Nurtured Heart Approach Australia we understand we do the best we can with the tools we have. Sometimes, the tools we have do not seem to match the intensity of the important people in our lives.

Whether you are new to the approach or already an advanced trainer, NHA Australia can support you.

  • Full Day NHA Introductory Workshops
  • Half Day Advanced Workshops
