Can Psychotherapy and Counselling Help My Child?

Research consistently demonstrates that talking therapies are highly effective for children and adolescents in both the short and long term. Many studies have shown that talking therapies can be as effective as certain medications and more likely to yield long-term benefits.

For some children, having an impartial person to talk to about their difficulties can be immensely helpful. Children are often sensitive to their parents' emotions and may feel compelled to put on a brave face to avoid causing distress. Cognitive Therapies can help reframe unhelpful or negative thought patterns and can be successfully utilized with children as young as three years old. Play therapy and art therapy can be particularly effective in helping children understand distressing events or complex emotions. Regardless of the chosen therapy, the objective is to provide your child with a safe space to navigate difficult feelings and cultivate a more positive outlook on life.
