Individual Therapy for Children
Our child counseling in New Hampshire addresses mental and behavioral health services that incorporate behavioral, social, gender identity, body image, and learning issues, extending to drug and alcohol addiction. These services are offered by therapists/counselors, psychiatrists, social workers, and psychologists/neuro-psychologists, with professionals here who specialize solely in issues affecting children.
Child-focused individual therapy may include:
- Emotional-regulation training
- Individual social-skills training
- Therapies that help children cope with anger, anxiety and depression
- Strategies to curb impulsivity, inattention and hyperactivity
- Coping and self-management strategies for more independence
- Adjustment to life changes such as divorce or separation of parents
Parent / Guardian consultations may include:
- Techniques to help foster social skill development in your children
- Development of positive relationships and family culture with difficult children
- Family problem-solving, such as managing homework problems, effectively dealing with conflict, and creating reward programs
- Management of particular behaviors as kids face divorce, blended families, etc.
- Individually-tailored parenting strategies
Your child may need individual therapy, or they may need family therapy. They may need both. Psychotherapy shows evidence of improvement in children’s feelings in regards to self-efficacy and the ability to bolster social relationships, which also helps them function more efficiently. We mostly draw from cognitive-behavioral techniques when working with kids of all ages, often times blended with an integrated approach.
Let us work with you to come up with the best personalized treatment plan possible. Keep in mind, there are certain requirements when it comes to child counseling in New Hampshire.
