How can Counselling and Psychotherapy help?
Parents and caregivers often bring their child to therapy for emotional, social, and behavioural support. Working with children often involves working with their caregivers and their families to ensure sustainable therapeutic results. There are many benefits of counselling and psychotherapy for children and their families. Therapy can assist parents and children to learn new skills and ways to communicate in the family, build emotional regulation, and facilitate positive emotional changes within a safe, expressive, and contained environment.
Our development begins from the moment we are created, born, and from the experiences we have had with our own caregivers. Being a supportive and insightful parent begins with understanding your own attachment with your caregivers and how this has impacted on you throughout different stages in your life. Your relationship with your child and the way that you respond or react to them can significantly impact on their emotional regulation as well as their behaviour.
Families and Parenting
Concerns & Worries
I offer support to children, adolescents parents and families with concerns relating to (and not limited) to:
Anxiety / Panic Attacks,
I use a child centered approach towards parenting that focuses on facilitating healthy attachments, building empathy, and enhancing emotional expression and regulation skills in the family. Working with parents is a wonderful way to develop a sense of safety, self compassion, and self-esteem within children.
