Individual sessions can involve the adult, adolescent, pre-teen, child, or preschooler.
All focus on the needs of the client. The individual approach in therapy is partially determined by the developmental stage of the client.
Each individual is a human system with many areas such as physical, emotional, intellectual, psychological, behavioural, and spiritual.
Client concerns originate from a variety of sources, both inside and outside, and specific to the unique individual.
Our psychotherapists and social workers draw on multiple types of therapy that match the individual in terms of developmental stage, area(s) of concern, and type(s) of therapy. This approach allows clients to reach their goals at a pace that is comfortable and effective.
Child and Adolescent Therapy & Counselling focuses on giving children a safe place to express themselves. The sessions are used to help children and adolescents understand their emotions, thoughts, and behaviour. Children learn skills to be able to change how they respond to situations.
The child and adolescent can come to individual counselling and therapy with concerns such as anxiety, depression, peer relationships, body image, parental divorce, bullying and many others. By learning and practising coping skills the child and adolescent can improve in such areas as self-esteem, peer relationships, family relationships and academic functioning and many more.
