Psychotherapy and Counseling in Children and Adult

COUNSELING FOR CHILDREN

Sometimes children, like adults, can benefit from therapy. Therapy can help children develop problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. Therapists can help children and families deal with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioral issues.

Therapy can be very effective for families with young children. You can begin to develop an understanding of what’s happening with your child and within your family dynamics.

Your therapist will take a look at what’s going on with your child and within your family. Your therapist will work with you to figure out the root causes of your child’s emotional or behavioral upsets. They can also help you learn how to interact with your child in ways that support long-term, healthy social and emotional development. You can create strategies for strengthening the attachment between you and your child. Developing these approaches now will set the stage for later interactions. It can also help children develop increased resiliency and the social and emotional well-being that they’ll carry with them throughout life.

ADULTS

Psychotherapy can help you heal and learn more constructive ways to deal with the problems or issues within your life. It can also be a supportive process when going through a difficult period or when under increased stress, such as starting a new career or going through a divorce.

Generally, psychotherapy is recommended whenever someone is struggling with a life, relationship, or work issue or specific mental health concern, and these issues are causing the individual a great deal of pain or upset for longer than a few days. Psychotherapy is most successful when the individual enters therapy on their own and has a strong desire to change.
