Child Therapy | Kilpan & Associates

By: Kilpan And Associates  06-Dec-2011

It is usual for children to experience occasional problems as they grow and mature.

They experience conflicts at home over such issues as toilet training, bedtime and homework. They encounter problems with parents and peers as they attempt to establish a personal identity and relate to others.

They experience conflict with teachers over academic and behavioural demands.

Children’s responses to life circumstances can range from mild and short-lived to severe and long lasting. If the parents’ attempts to help their child are unsuccessful or a child’s problems are not sorted within a reasonable time-frame professional assistance may be needed.

Therapy and counselling offers children the opportunity to identify, discuss and understand problems, for example separation or divorce, and to develop necessary coping skills. It also provides the opportunity to address parental concerns, educate parents regarding their child’s unique needs and assist them in meeting these needs in an appropriate, effective fashion.

Kilpan believes parental involvement is crucial in a child’s treatment. From the first session, we view parents as our partners in the counselling process and rely upon them to provide critical feedback.
