Therapy for Children & Adolescents

Teacher and Pupil

Childhood and adolescence is a period of change. Many children and teenagers may face problems that influence how they feel, act and learn.


Therapy can help them to work through challenging and confusing feelings in a safe setting. The aim is to provide children and adolescents with tools for going forward by teaching them to talk about their feelings and build emotional resilience.

It can also help to identify learning difficulties and developmental issues.
