Raleigh, NC Child and Teen Counseling in Wake County

Does my child need counseling?

Parenting is one of the most difficult and emotionally draining jobs one can undertake. One particular challenge for parents is having to understand the emotional and intellectual needs of their child. This is not an easy task, especially when some children exhibit more difficult behaviors than others. Even the difference in the way siblings respond can be great. All of this leaves parents guessing what is serious and what is not.

Thriveworks Raleigh, NC child counselors in Wake County are trained to assess behavioral challenges and to know when they warrant a closer look. Each child is an individual and will cope with difficult situations, such as divorce, trauma, parental addictions, or mental health issues, differently. Raleigh, NC counselors take individual differences into consideration when assessing a new client.

Some behaviors that may cause concern are:

  • Significant changes to sleep, either an increase or decrease
  • Noticeable and prolonged shifts in mood
  • Frequent fighting with peers
  • Excessive shyness or anxiety in new situations
  • Bedwetting or nervous habits, such as nail biting

How can a Raleigh, NC child counselor or psychologist help?

Raleigh, NC child counselors in Wake County have dedicated their careers to helping children and their families who are experiencing behaviors that cause disruption or worry. They are able to build a strong rapport with your child and find the best way to communicate with him or her, even if your child is very young. They use warmth, empathy and compassion as the cornerstones of their counseling approach. Our counselors know that every child learns and processes emotions differently, but all deserve to achieve wellness in their lives.

Sometimes a child simply needs the assistance of a trained professional and a neutral environment to process what he or she is experiencing. Other times he or she may need additional counseling before resolving the maladaptive behaviors. In either case, Raleigh child counseling can be vital in helping your child overcome their difficulties and become happy, healthy children again.

Can I talk to someone about my child?

Yes. Raleigh child counselors in Wake County are always happy to discuss any concern you have about your child. Call our office today to talk to one of our trained professionals or to book a consultation.
