Psychotherapy-Counseling for Children

Rapid physical, cognitive and psycho-emotional development, schooling, interaction with peers, anxiety related to tests, relationships with parents and teachers, dysfunctional forms of communication within the family are sources of common concern in children and adolescents. Any psychic tension will be expressed through their behavior, which is their own “language” of communication. In this context, the development of symptoms is an indication of the anxiety, fear, insecurity and anxiety they are experiencing.

The child may have difficulty learning or have behavioral problems in school that indicate something is wrong. The difficulties can also affect the food sphere (eating difficulties, neophobia,…). The period of childhood is also marked by the appearance of the first fears and anxieties (fear of death, animals, the dark …), sometimes this fear can be directed towards school and become a school phobia. Finally, I am receiving child psychotherapy for hyperactivity problems.

In psychotherapy our goal is to alleviate symptoms, intervene in the system in which the problem occurs and prevent their healthy development into adulthood. Treatment of the child may include play, simulation, and discussion. Children need to feel in a caring environment, where they can express what hinders their normal psychosocial development and makes it difficult for them to adapt to the family and social environment.

Cooperation with parents is crucial. That is why we also offer parenting counseling or family therapy sessions, for optimal and comprehensive treatment of the problem.

The most common symptoms in children and adolescents, boys and girls are :

  • Behavior problems: aggressiveness, delinquency, disobedience, outbursts of anger, athyrostomy.
  • Problems adapting to school, school refusal
