The Randwick Specialists Bed Wetting Clinic
The Randwick Specialists Bed Wetting Clinic is run by Professor Robert Farnsworth. The Clinic is for both day and night time continence problems.

Professor Farnsworth has 50 years experience in the management of bladder function in the paediatric population in private practice and at Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick. He is a world expert in enuresis, and is a member of the International Children's Continence Society. On the initial consultation, Professor Farnsworth uses his clinical expertise to explain and educate both the child and their parents on the physiological nature of enuresis and provides a safe place for children to understand their problem and so assist them with keeping the motivation to commence the training program.

The first session is half an hour with Professor Farnsworth, he will where needed refer the child and family to Dr. Meg Goodison-Farnsworth, Clinical Psychologist. Meg is also a member of the International Children's Continence Society and is fully trained in the management of enuresis. Sessions with Meg can last up to one hour.. For every visit to the Clinic, it is important for management that the child comes with a comfortably full bladder, so storage and emptying pattern can be assessed.

Working in conjunction with children, their families and their school institution, occupational therapy assists children to manage a range of problems including:

  • Developmental delay
  • Autism
  • Specific learning difficulties
  • Chronic Pain

The psychology group at Randwick Specialists works with children, adolescents, adults and families and use a range of approaches including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for assessment and treatment of issues such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Challenging behaviours
  • Grief and loss
  • Social problems
  • Chronic pain management
  • Chronic illness management
  • Overall development (Bayleys III) – ages 1-4 years
    • Assessment of cognitive and intellectual development as well as language and motor development to identify normal progress or areas of developmental delay. Early assessment and intervention not only allows for strengths to be identified but it can also highlight any areas of weakness. Once identified recommendations can be made to minimise a child’s ongoing functional impairments and help avoid missed opportunities for mastering critical functional skills. This assessment also identifies challenges early on so that interventions can be introduced at the earliest possible time, if necessary.
  • School readiness assessments:
    • For parents who are unsure whether to send their child to school or hold them back for another year.
  • Cognitive and intellectual assessments & educational evaluations – ages 4-18 years:
    • These assessments highlight how a child learns information, as well as their speed of processing information and aspects of their memory.  The focus is on understanding a child’s academic strengths and weaknesses and also to assess and pinpoint learning difficulties and identify strategies that will assist the child to maximise their academic potential.
