Starting Child & teen counseling

What is Child & teen counseling?

Thriveworks child & teen counseling in Greensboro helps young individuals better understand and manage the challenges that affect their mental health. Common challenges amongst kids include behavioral issues, trauma, bullying, depression, and anxiety. All ages of children and adolescents can attend and benefit from therapy.

How does Child & teen counseling work?

Child & teen counseling works by using multiple techniques, tailored to fit the child or teen's needs — based on their age group, their challenges, and the severity of their challenges. It might involve play therapy for younger kids or cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectic behavioral therapy, art therapy, and others for varying ages. In any case, child & teen counselors have the expertise and experience to help young individuals at their level.

Is Child & teen counseling conducted in person or online?

Child & teen counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Child & teen counseling last?

The length of child & teen counseling at Thriveworks in Greensboro, NC depends on your child's needs as well as the goals that you and their therapist might have for them. Generally, child & teen counseling sessions will last for several months.

Need more help deciding?

What seems like overnight, children can change from being lively little kids to reserved and independent adolescents. During that time, their brains are changing just as rapidly as their physical selves, and with that sometimes comes concern over their changing behavior. It’s hard for parents to tell if those mood swings, extra hours in bed, or anxiety over social settings is normal behavior or if it is cause for a closer look at their child.

If you are worried about your child, think that they might be struggling, or believe that they could benefit from the professional guidance and support that a therapist can provide, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Counseling in Greensboro, NC. Our child therapists, teen counselors, and psychologists are here to help your child or teen thrive. This might mean working through mental health issues, social challenges, and other problems that are affecting their livelihood. This might also mean offering support as they learn to navigate the changes that come with childhood and teenhood.

To schedule a child therapy or teen counseling session at Thriveworks Counseling in Greensboro, NC, simply call our office. We’re here to help, guide, and support your kids.

Could My Child Benefit from Child Therapy?

Think about all of the emotions that you might move through in any given day: stress, anger, joy, disappointment, contentment, pride, sadness. These, of course, will vary greatly depending on the day. That said, think about how hard it can be to feel, process, manage, and communicate these emotions appropriately. Now, think about how hard it must be for kids to do so. Here, a child therapist can step in and make all the difference.

There are many situations in which a child therapist can prove helpful. As we just discussed, they can help kids manage difficult emotions; they can also help kids to process and heal from traumatic experiences, such as the loss of a loved one; they can support kids through their parents’ divorce; they can assess and diagnose mental illness as well as learning disorders; and so much more.

The child therapists at Thriveworks in Greensboro, NC can help you, your child, and your entire family by providing your child with a little extra help and support as they navigate this important stage of life. If you think they could find value in working with a mental health professional, we’re here to fill that need.

Does My Teen Need Counseling?

All those neurological changes happening in your teen can sometimes be a trigger for the onset of a mental illness. Depression, anxiety, self-harm, eating disorders and behavioral disorders are all common mental health diagnoses at this age. If left unchecked without intervention by a teen counselor it could lead to academic, social and personal problems.

Knowing what to look for can be beneficial in getting your teen the help they need. Has your child:

  • Shown sudden and uncharacteristic changes in their behavior?
  • Shown fear or avoidance towards certain people or places?
  • Started making negative comments about their weight or appearance?
  • Become deliberately defiant?
  • Withdrawn themselves from their circle of friends?
  • Intentionally harmed themselves?
  • Started using or misusing drugs and alcohol?

The teen counselors at Thriveworks have experience helping teens and their families navigate the new challenges a mental health diagnosis can bring and they can successfully treat many different types of mental health disorders. Oftentimes, when symptoms are detected early and are properly treated, the outcomes can be very positive. Our qualified counselors can work with your teen to isolate the issues they are facing and give them helpful coping tools.
