Let’s face it, life can be really tough sometimes, especially for children over the past few years. They have been faced with additional amounts of uncertainty, challenges, and obstacles which can be difficult to deal with.
At Anchoridge, we love to help children work through all the hardships and storms that come their way, and help them find ways to be supported, encouraged, and to persevere. And a large part of this resiliency that we foster within our young clients, has to do with helping them express their story through any means that empowers them. Child Therapy at Anchoridge involves an integrative approach drawing from both art and play therapy to help your child explore, play and get creative while working through deeper issues.
Anchoridge is proud to work to address a large variety of issues facing children such as, trauma; depression; disruptive behaviours; anxiety and OCD. Additionally, our clinicians are skilled at helping clients navigate the complexities that arise when dealing with ADD/ADHD and ODD while offering additional support in the form of parent consultations and family counselling.
As parents, we do everything we can to give our children the best start in life! We strive to build a strong foundation for them and try every parenting technique in the book to teach and mould our children into respectable and successful adults. Sometimes, however, despite a parent's best efforts, they'll often receive phone calls from a child's school about slipping grades and unruly behaviour.
Disruptions in their academic process can nearly always be connected to underlying learning or mental health issue. The majority of children with behavioural issues or those showing a decline in academic performance often grapple with issues ranging from learning disabilities or something as simple as poor organizational skills.
We at Anchoridge Counselling specialize in working with adolescents with disabilities, academic challenges, self-esteem, confidence, and sometimes issues that simply arise from just being a teenager.
