Children, like adults, can benefit from psychotherapy for a variety of issues. They exhibit symptoms of anxiety and depression. They may be dealing with loss of loved ones, or fears, traumas, or school related disorders, such as ADHD.
Children often use play to work through their concerns and develop better coping skills and internal resources. They prefer play to talking. Play therapy is often a successful technique for the younger child.
Children are also naturally good at using their imagination and may benefit from learning self hypnotic skills for managing pain, focusing, keeping dry beds, and improving their sleep. Parents or caregivers are an integral part of the child’s life and hence are kept abreast of the nature and progress of their treatment, while maintaining the same standards of confidentiality as those for adults.
