Child Therapy

Children are the happiest soul. They are carefree, playful, and ignorant to real-life challenges. We were all once a free bird, with no responsibilities to shoulder upon. Yet, how many of us as kids and teens have faced challenges? Did you even know

What was actually happening to you?

Similarly, a child and adolescent might encounter difficulties that are oblivious to them. They might be anxious, depressed, or lost. You might suddenly find your child quiet and disoriented. Are they not as eager to play with other children as before? Are they trying to isolate themselves?

 

Children often fail to realize the difficulties which may occur due to different circumstances. Some trouble in school or a change in personal life can affect their mental health. In such a scenario, if you notice any change in a child’s behavior do not ignore it. It is imperative to immediately act upon it.

Working with a child can be tough. On one hand, you may lack the expertise to understand their situation. On the other, they might be reluctant to even speak to you.

In such cases, introducing them to a child therapist for help can prove effective. A therapy session can support kids and teens in understanding their mental state. It is significant for children in developing the right mental condition. Our distinct clinical child adolescent psychology sessions at Beacon Counseling provide complete assistance to help them relieve their condition.

 

What is Child Therapy?

At a tender age, a child confused with their emotions can hardly express their feelings. Whether scared, traumatized, lonely, or even sick, children are unable to emote their thoughts. A child therapist can help them seek their direction, express feelings, and determine right behavior.

Child therapy is designed to use an evidence-based approach for counseling the child and adolescent. The therapy technique aims to counsel kids and teens with right social, emotional, and mental health development. The first step to right counseling is to help the child express. The counselors help children map their problems and help them open up with their feelings.

A child can be vulnerable to any situation. It is imperative to understand their problems. Being too direct with a child can be harmful. As such, a child therapist can recognize and identify the hitch. They clearly know the process. The expert tactics help them to get friendly with the child and build a relationship. Once familiarity is developed, the child will feel comfortable in sharing their challenges.

The child therapist recognizing the problems faced by the child and adolescent would initiate therapies as suitable. Our professional therapies include:

Play Therapy:

A playful environment always attracts children. It makes them comfortable and helps them in opening up with the child therapist conveniently. Play therapy is useful for kids and teens who are facing internal glitches. During play therapy, it is easy for our therapist to converse, ask questions, and gauge the child’s problems. A friendly environment supports them in sharing their anomalies without any fear. Additionally, exercises can make them relaxed to share what they are going through.

 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:

Our thought process has a major impact on our minds and feelings. Our emotions are rather driven by our thoughts. Thus, our expert child therapist at Beacon Counseling ensures that your child is aware of their thoughts and feelings. The feelings that are changing their behavior are deeply gauged upon during the cognitive behavioral therapy session. During this process, the child is made to realize his or her thoughts which might be ruling their feelings subconsciously. This helps the child to acknowledge and address their changing behavior driven by the situation and feelings. It is an excellent corrective therapy for kids and teens.
