The emotional well-being of children and young people can be greatly impacted by significant life events such as the divorce of parents, changing schools, or the loss of an important person or pet in their lives. Any sort of transition in our lives can be tough as it will bring with it a loss of some description. For example, starting a new school can be daunting, but also means the loss of the familiarity of the old school and the people and comforts that went with it. If you feel that your child is experiencing a difficult period in their life, you may want to consider whether therapy could help them.
Depending on the age and ability of a young person and their individual needs, therapy with them at could take several forms. For example, creative therapy, elements of mindfulness exercises and meditation, and talking therapy in the form of messenges online or face-to-face video calling.
I have a great deal of experience of working with children and young people, so if you’re concerned about your child’s emotional well-being and would like to talk to me about whether therapy could help, I’d be happy to talk it through with you.
Since working only remotely at present, I work with teenagers and with parents.
