Counseling for children is a difficult topic for parents. No parent wants their child to require counseling. Unfortunately, life for children nowadays can be quite complicated and challenging and some children experience violence or trauma through no fault of the parents.
While counseling for children can be focused on repairing harm, it can also be used to develop and nurture healthy life skills such as the ability to regulate emotions, maintain positive self-esteem, get along with others and improve confidence and self-care. These skills can help children do more than manage stress, but to actively thrive.
Counseling can be helpful if your child is experiencing
- Behavioral problems at home and/or school
- Difficulty managing their anger impulses
- Excessive worry
- Difficulty making friends
- Repetitive behaviors
- Trouble separating from parents
