Therapy for Adolescents and Children
supporting children with emotional difficulties and growth
Poor quality sleep, insomnia, outbursts of anger, worry, low self-esteem can all be indicators of stress, anxiety or even the beginnings of depression.
Take heart. With the right help to deal with the instigators of the symptoms and to build on the young person’s resources, most children will come out of these episodes stronger and better able to manage challenges of the future.
The right brief solution-focussed approach will also reduce the chances of unnecessary medicalisation of what might just be inadequate coping strategies in a young person’s life.
If we begin by helping adolescents and children improve the quality of their sleep, they can learn to relax, worry less and solve their problems better, deal appropriately with feelings of anger or break out of the spiral of depression quickly.
