What are ways I might know it is time to take my child to child counseling? How will I know that it is time to take my child to child counseling?
- Your child’s behavior is getting in the way of his/her daily life and your family’s ability to function without constant worry or conflict.
- You and your partner are constantly fighting about how to handle your child’s behavior or mood.
- You find yourself wishing for your happy child to return.
- You feel like you might be failing as a parent because you just don’t know how to help.
Do children really benefit from child counseling? Can play therapy really change my child’s behavior?
My playful and engaging approach to therapy allows me to successfully use play, art, and movement to create an environment where kids feel comfortable sharing their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. It is within play that I help children stop tantrums at school by teaching them other ways to communicate; helps children start playing nicely with peers. Play in therapeutic context helps children develop new coping skills to deal with fears, which keep them away from school or interfere with them being carefree in their daily lives.
