What might bring a child or young person to therapy?
We are able to offer children and young people a safe space to acknowledge, experience and process their feelings, alongside a reliable adult, in confidence. These feelings, may at times, seem unmanageable and overwhelming, leaving children confused or distressed, anxious or frightened. Feelings may present in huge angry outburst, depressive or shut down behaviours or self-harming activities.
Evidence suggests that supporting children and young people therapeutically at an early age, in experiencing and making sense of a range of feelings, nurtures the development of physical health, mental health, resilience and well being. At Therapy Space we foster a playful, accepting and empathic approach, enabling the child to experience all parts of themselves within the therapeutic relationship, in a safe and caring environment.
