Allow yourself to get in touch with your love for your children

Therapy for Children can help children find release from:

  • negativity
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • procrastination
  • perfectionism
  • performance issues in school
  • difficulty with transitions
  • defiant oppositional disorder

Help your children to find acceptance; work through parent divorce and separation, sadness and anger, losses within the family; and ultimately, to find a sense of belonging at home, school and with themselves.
