Childrens therapy

Children, just like adults, are susceptible to their surroundings. Whether it’s school stress, peer pressure, or major changes in their home life such as family breakdowns or moving, children can struggle to effectively adjust – impacting on their emotions as a result.

Growing up, children can have difficulties communicating their

feelings, which can be frustrating for the child and those around

them. Often, this frustration can further impact the childs 

emotions and lead to ‘acting out’.

 

It may be that they are acting increasingly volatile, withdrawing

into themselves, or experiencing anxiety; all of which can

impact their social relationships and life at school.

At Paradigm Counselling Services, our counsellors are also trained in a childs primary language of communication: play. Using creative mediums such as clay, crafts, dolls or sand, we build a rapport that the child feels comfortable with.  

We enable your child to make sense of their emotions and find effective tools for communication – reducing the need to act out and helping them to adjust to difficult times.

Your child may benefit from talking to a professional counsellor if they are experiencing:
  • Anxiety

  • Volatile moods and outbursts

  • Low self-esteem and issues with confidence

  • Low moods

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Phobias

  • Separation anxiety

  • Difficulty building/maintaining social relationships

  • Bereavement

  • School stress

  • Family breakdown

  • Moving house/area/school

  • Long term health condition
