Child Therapy and Counseling in Mt. Pleasant, SC—Counselors and Therapists

Being a kid isn’t always easy. And parenting rarely is. Just as a child may be going through difficult challenges they have never experienced before, parents often feel like they’re moving through uncharted territory in raising a child.

Often, kids and teenagers — as well as their parents — need help navigating difficult situations and changes that most everyone goes through. Whether it’s dealing with bullying, body image issues, separation or divorce, experimenting with drugs and alcohol, or even excess stress or low self-esteem, child therapy can help you and your child find new ways to cope with these transitions and phases of life. Whatever your child is struggling with, the child therapists and counselors at Thriveworks in Mt. Pleasant are here to help you. If you’re ready to schedule a session with one of our experienced counselors, please call us at 843-606-6223.

Should My Kid Meet with a Child Therapist?

We can remember what it was like to be a kid — what it was like to go through our first breakup, make friends at a new school, have trouble at home, balance too many responsibilities. The list goes on. If your child or teenager is struggling to cope with a difficult situation or to manage their feelings, consider having them visit with a child therapist. These are just some of the issues we can help your child with:

  • Low self-esteem
  • Life transitions
  • Bullying
  • Sadness and anger
  • Stress
  • Relationship issues
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mental illnesses

Therapy can be helpful to kids and teens who are dealing with problems that negatively affect their feelings or behaviors, and who aren’t coping well. If your child is going through a difficult time and you’re looking for support, consider meeting with a child therapist at Thriveworks in Mt. Pleasant. Call us today to schedule your appointment. Our phone number is 843-606-6223. We have the training, skills and experience that will help your child become happy and healthy again.

Tools and Techniques Used in Child Therapy

Child therapy is customized to each person, situation and circumstance. The primary goal in child therapy is to help the child live a happier, healthier life. These are a few examples of how a child therapist can help kids navigate difficulty and heal:

  1. Self-esteem is constantly in flux during childhood and adolescence. Children have experiences every day that can have a positive or a negative effect on how they see and feel about themselves. A child therapist works with your child to build their confidence and improve self-esteem. This, in turn, can help to prevent more serious issues such as anxiety or depression.
  2. School and schoolwork can pose significant challenges for a child and become increasingly difficult for adolescents. Peer pressure, bullying, academic expectations, extracurricular activities — these are all sources of potential stress and can be difficult for a child to manage or navigate, even with the full parental support. Our child therapists can help your child have an overall positive experience in elementary, middle, or high school.

Whatever your or your child’s concerns, meeting with a child therapist can be beneficial. In addition to our extensive skills and experience, we offer flexible hours to ensure you get the help you need as soon as possible. Evening and weekend appointments are available to accommodate your busy schedule and ensure you can make it to our office without missing work or school. We accept most major insurance plans.

At Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant Counseling, we can help bring you and your child grow in positive, nurturing ways. We are conveniently located adjacent to the Queensborough Shopping Center at 1131 Queensborough Blvd., #100 in Mt. Pleasant. Give us a call today at 843-606-6223 to schedule your first therapy session.

Finally found help for my PPD

★★★★★
I had a hard time finding help after the birth of my daughter. A friend told me about Thriveworks so I added them to my list of counselors to leave a message for. They answered, scheduled an appointment for the next day, and accepted my insurance. I've had three sessions already and just got a call back from one of the other people I called. Can't recommend them enough!!
