Individual Child Therapy
Individual child therapy is used to help children understand, and find solutions for negative feelings and upsetting events that they haven't had the chance to understand or resolve. A variety of techniques and methods are used to help children who are experiencing difficulties with their emotions and behaviour.
Family therapy is a form of treatment that views socio-emotional problems and their treatment in terms of the interactions among family members. In this collective manner, family therapy can help family members improve communication and resolve conflicts.
Group therapy is often beneficial to children by providing support from other children going through similar situations. Group therapy provides a comprehensive therapeutic intervention process which is more cost-effective for parents.
