Children and Young People Therapy

Children and Young People Therapy

Pressures on children

Children frequently struggle with the challenges that life brings them. They can feel stressed, anxious, misunderstood, lost, lonely, worthless or powerless. Sometimes these intense feelings lead to behaviour that is of concern to family, friends, school, or themselves. School can become a struggle, friendships difficult, and just trying to fit in and meet endless expectations seems impossible.

There are great pressures on children and young adults today. This can show itself through eating disorders, anxiety, depression, self harm, and addiction.

Developing coping mechanisms

In therapy we try together to understand where the struggle and accompanying stress and anxiety come from. We address the things that are of concern.

We think about what is possible and what is needed to change and how feelings can be expressed differently. Sometimes a break from the difficult feelings is enough, sometimes feeling heard is enough but we also try to find ways of managing those feelings so they become less overwhelming and potentially harmful.

The main aim is to enable the child/young person to develop coping mechanisms that help them become more resilient.

Play therapy

In therapy with children I use play therapy. We use drawing, writing, painting, toys, sandtray and music or just talking, whatever suits.

For children’s therapy the initial conversation is with a parent. Young people can either self-refer or a parent can make the initial contact.
