Children often are exposed to the same types of psychological traumas and stresses as adults and, like adults, they can often benefit from sitting down with a trained counselor for a nonthreatening discussion of these issues. The Family Psychology Place offers child counseling in Calgary to help children interpret and learn to deal with issues that affect their social activities, education, or development. Counseling is appropriate for children of all ages, from preschoolers to teenagers.
Children who have experienced trauma, abuse, grief, or other disturbing events may have difficulty understanding and dealing with those events. Children necessarily make judgments on the basis of their own limited life experience and instruction, so they might not be motivated to ask for help, believing that an issue is their fault, or just a normal part of life. Our child counselors have completed years of training and instruction regarding the thought processes of children so that they are prepared to assist youngsters in interpreting and coping with issues in a way they can understand.
Some of the issues for which child counseling may be beneficial include:
Child counseling is helpful in identifying and addressing problems and conditions that can affect your child’s happiness, behaviour and personal development. The Calgary child psychologists at The Family Psychology Place can help children and their parents acquire skills and tools for dealing with these problems, as well as the stress, anxiety and uncertainty that come with them. For more information, or to schedule an initial consultation for your child, please contact The Family Psychology Place.
