Children’s Therapy and Adolescents Therapy

The following are some of the conditions I treat in children and adolescents

  • Behavioural problems (eating, sleeping, toileting, conduct)
  • Anxiety (separation, OCD, social, phobias)
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Depression
  • Adjustment to change
  • Trauma

When working with children I would normally offer an initial consultation with one or both parents (caregivers) to discuss the nature of the concern before proceeding to see the child. After this initial meeting the child can either be seen on their own or with the parent(s), or through a combination of both, depending on what is thought to be most beneficial to the child, taking into account presenting problem and family context. Sometimes consulting with parents alone will prove to be the most effective approach!
