Child Therapy, Counseling for Kids – Columbia SC
There is nothing more important in a parent’s life than the health of their child. This includes both their physical health and also their emotional health. When your child has even a cold, things just are not right in the world. When your child is struggling with a serious mental health issue, the world seems to stop. Most parents would give anything to help their child in whatever way they can. But knowing where to turn in this time of turmoil can be confusing and overwhelming. Consider Thriveworks Columbia SC as an excellent choice for your child therapy needs.
There are many reasons to pursue child therapy. These may include:
- ADD/ADHD symptoms
- Obsessive-compulsive behaviors
- Trouble in school
- Experienced abuse or neglect
- Life transition such as parent’s divorce
- Difficulty adjusting to a new environment
- Loss of a loved one
- Autism symptoms or concerns
- Eating disorders
- Behavioral problems at school or home
- Illegal drug use
- Emotional or psychological problems
The reason you are considering therapy for your child may have popped out from that list immediately. Or perhaps the problem is a combination of several items on the list, or did not appear at all. You, as the parent, are the expert on your child. If you feel that something is just not right, or you feel seriously unsettled about something with your child, do not ignore that feeling. Reach out for help as soon as possible.
If you are looking for help with your teenager, you may be confused about whether your child is exhibiting normal adolescent rebellion or something more. In this time in society, there are so many new things to worry about; you may feel overwhelmed as a parent. Let Thriveworks Columbia SC partner with you and decipher serious problems from normal growing pains.
There are many methods for working with a child that differ from working with an adult. Not every provider is skilled or experienced in working with children. Your child’s age will help determine what strategies are best for having open communication between he or she and the therapist. Our trained Thriveworks Columbia SC child therapists will be able to identify what type of therapy will be best for your child’s unique situation.
Types of child therapy include:
- Play therapy
- Behavioral therapy
- Cognitive therapy
- Family therapy
- Talk therapy
- Teaching relaxation techniques
- Teaching stress management
- Developing coping skills
- Identifying and treating serious medical issues
- Identifying and treating serious psychological issues
There is no one else in the world exactly like your child. Your child is unique and special. There is no one child therapy technique that is right for every child. A skilled child therapist understands that and will develop a strategy that will help your child communicate in an open and clear way, no matter what their age or situation.
