Psychotherapy with Children, Young People and Parents
Psychotherapy focuses on helping a child or young person make sense of the difficulties they are struggling with right now, whilst also seeking to understand how past experiences may be affecting how they are currently managing . An integral part of therapeutic support is to work also with parents/carers, aiming to help foster an understanding of a young person’s behaviours and responses, seeking to offer new perspectives on ways to engage positively with what is happening. Areas of support include issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, loss, trauma and eating disorders.
Psychotherapy can also be a very effective pathway to support for individuals with neurological differences, such as Autistic Spectrum Conditions and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This understanding embraces the nature of the difficulties, consideration as to how a young person’s difference might impact on their communication or interaction with others and, also, how this difference may have impacted on a child or young person’s life experiences until the present time.
