Child Psychotherapy exists as a collaborative process with parents and seeks to involve them in all stages of this process. Oftentimes, children do not have the emotional vocabulary to be able to express how they are feeling. This results in psychological difficulties being communicated through behaviour. Parents may be concerned about significant anxiety or worry, stress around separation, sadness or emotional reactivity, poor self-esteem, significant irritability, difficulties making friends or in relationships.
Younger clients are approached from a therapeutic intervention that encourages self-expression, understanding and growth; specifically Play Therapy and Teddy Bear Therapy. These interventions can assist children through a wide range of difficulties, from traumas to life-stage challenges to social difficulties.
