Children can benefit from therapy, just like teenagers, for school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure.
Some children need help talking about their feelings about family issues, especially related to major transitions such as bereavement, divorce, move, or serious illness. It may not be clear what’s caused a child to suddenly seem withdrawn or worried. Child therapy looks at building self-esteem and improving relationships and communication.
Child therapists are experts at helping children cope with stress, develop problem-solving skills, a strong sense of self and emotional strength.
