Dr. Carsten Vogt, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist

Dr. Carsten Vogt

Lyn’s experience through working in different organisations gives her a unique ability to provide a  comprehensive and holistic service to children, young people and their families. From her past background in education, Lyn has a good understanding of the difficulties children and young people may face both academically as well as socially when going through their education. As an ADHD coach/trainer, Lyn is highly skilled in working with children and young people with neurodevelopmental conditions such as ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder and manage difficulties associated with hyperactive, inattentive and impulsive behaviour or social communication difficulties. For many years Lyn has been providing training for parents and carers using research evidence based parenting strategies aiming to make parents and carers feel more confident in helping their children, and understand their individual developmental needs. Lyn is accustomed to situations when young people’s lives might spiral into worrying trajectories of anti-social behaviour and delinquency. These are particularly difficult and challenging times for the young person and their families and through her work in the youth offending service, Lyn has played a major role helping young people overcome complex problems and prevent offending behaviours as well as supporting the parents, who often feel isolated and desperate in these situations. As a professional, Lyn is very facilitating and approachable. She is considerate of the individual circumstances and cultural backgrounds of the families she works with and her experience in coordinating multi-agency care packages for her clients will offer families valuable advice on what additional support is available for them and their children.
