Our Vision

Building Minds Psychology was established by Dr Camilla Nguyen, Clinical Psychologist, in 2020 to offer specialist young person’s mental health services and education. 

We support children, adolescents, young adults and their families with any concerns that may cause problems in their social, emotional, and/or cognitive development, across a variety of settings. We deliver tailored, evidence-based assessment and interventions to improve emotional and psychological wellbeing for the young person.

We have extensive clinical, education and research experience working with individuals on the autism spectrum. Our aims are to offer individual and group treatment to the young person, education for their family/whanau, and high-quality training to professionals.

Our mission is to create a place where we can build on relationships, share knowledge and help empowering young minds to reach their full-potential!
