Children are our greatest joys and concerns. We want to do the best for them but sometimes our children require independent therapy to help them cope with what is going on in their lives, from their point of view. Common concerns for children and adolescents include:
- depression and anxiety
- oppositional or defiant behaviour
- problems with anger management
- school performance
- difficulties with peers
- eating problems
- conflicts with the family
Work with a therapist can help the child to:
- express his or her feelings and thoughts
- work out solutions to the problems that are bothering him or her
- nurture self-worth and healthy emotional development
- improve relationships
- gain and share new perspectives
