Common Questions About Children/Youth Therapy
What will we talked about during Consultation?
Children learn to express their feelings, overcome, and work through any issues troubling them. Structured therapy helps them cope, communicate, and improve their social, family, educational, and life experiences.
What issues can a child mental health practitioner help with?
Our counsellors are trained to help with a range of issues, including family problems, school problems, bullying, aggression, and various emotional problems such as sadness, grief, anger, stress, worry, and low self-esteem. Our therapists are also experienced in helping children and youngsters with conditions like ADHD, depression, OCD and anxiety, eating disorders, self-injury, disruptive behaviour disorders, autism, and trauma-related disorders.
When should I consider getting help for my child?
Children and young adults may benefit from professional guidance when facing challenges they cannot handle alone or when they significantly impact their well-being, emotions, behaviour, or academic performance. If problems persist and aren’t resolved independently, therapy can provide the necessary support for improvement. Sometimes, the entire family may require psychotherapy to enhance communication, acceptance, and the creation of healthy boundaries among family members.
How will a counsellor work with my child?
Our counsellors work closely with children and teenagers, providing praise and support as they learn new life and coping skills. The approach depends on the kid’s age and may involve meeting with the minor individually or with their guardian. The counsellor may also provide tips and guidance to mothers or fathers on supporting their kids at home.
How long will my child need Guidance?
The consultation duration will depend on the children’s needs and the goals you and your psychotherapist set. Typically, therapists recommend meeting once a week for a few months to achieve the desired outcomes.
