Therapy for Children
Some children have difficulties in dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. They also may need to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there is a major transition, such as a divorce, a move, or serious illness within the family. Through play, different exercises and therapy for children, in a brief period of time, we help them to build resources, to find tranquillity and relief in the difficult areas of their lives.
Therapy for children, can help children and adolescents to develop problem-solving skills while teaching them the value of seeking help. They can benefit, as it helps them and their families to cope with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioural issues.

Should My Child go to Therapy?
Therapy for children can be of great help when it is not clear what causes a child to suddenly become withdrawn, worried, stressed, sulky, or tearful. It is also helpful if you sense your child might have an emotional or behavioural problem, or needs help coping with a difficult life event.
Significant life events — such as the death of a family member, friend, or pet; divorce or a move; abuse; trauma; a parent leaving on military deployment; or a major illness in the family — can cause stress that might lead to behavioural problems, mood, sleep, appetite, and academic or social alterations.
