Child and Adolescent counsellors and psychotherapists are trained to look beneath the surface of difficult emotions, behaviours and relationships to help children, adolescents and their families to understand themselves and their problems. They often carefully observe a child’s behaviour or play to find what the child might be trying to communicate.
Child and Adolescent counsellors and psychotherapists work to develop and sustain therapeutic relationships with children and adolescents in order to help them make sense of their experiences. They help young people to learn how to express their emotions in a smooth way, rather than a disturbed way. This can help a child to get back to the normal process of child development.
