Mental Health Counseling

Children’s Therapy Place is pleased to announce the arrival of mental health counseling services. Children’s Therapy Place offers counseling services to children, parents and families.

Sometimes children and their families may need extra support if they are finding it difficult to deal with or understand their emotions and/or behavior. Schools often provide professionals to help young people and their families; however some families may decide to seek further help in the form of an outside counseling agency.

Counseling for children and young people may differ from counseling for adults, and will depend on the child’s age, specific difficulties and their development. Different methods may be used to encourage young children to be able to express their difficulties, such as play and art. For example, reading stories and talking about feelings of a character in that story may help the child to discuss their own feelings, or drawing/painting/drama may help children to express themselves. Since many of our young clients do not have the words to fully express themself, play therapy gives them the chance to be heard, not through words, but through play. Play therapy is a therapeutic approach that is backed by research. Its methods have been proven effective with children. These methods give the counselor a great insight into the unconscious mind of the child.

Older children may prefer talking therapy, or a mixture of both, and the counseling approach will depend on a particular individual. Although different methods may be used for counseling children, the aim of counseling for both children and adults is ultimately the same- to help the individual cope better with their emotions and feelings.

Child related issues may include:

  • family and step-family relationships
  • bullying
  • bereavement/loss
  • emotional problems
  • behavioral problems
  • Coping with past abuse (sexual or physical)
  • Coping with mental health disorders (ADHD, Conduct Disorders, Depression, Anxiety, Attachment Disorders etc.)
