Services I Provide
Child & Adolescent Therapy
Every parent or care-giver wishes and hopes for the best for those under their care. But what happens when you notice some developmental delays, disruptive behaviour or even strange behaviour in your child. The first thing that happens is that you will panic, feel frustrated, powerless and helpless.
You may even make a lot of mistakes while trying to come to terms with your child’s challenging behaviours or problems. It is therefore helpful to seek professional help to make sense of your child’s problems or problematic behaviours. Your child may benefit from our services if he/she presents with the following:
Sometimes we find ourselves having to deal with unresolved life challenges and difficulties. We may wish to have someone who can help us make sense of the struggles we face. During individual therapy session you will be able to reflect and address some of the following:
- Unresolved trauma (it could be sexual abuse or accidents)
- Unresolved or new grief (having lost someone closest to you)
- Challenges relating to low self-esteem or poor self-confidence
- Phobias, anxieties & unexplained constant fears
Starting or building intimate relationships may seem a wonderful thing for most people. But for some, intimate relationships may prove to be disastrous and may have undesirable consequences for the rest of your life. Despite this, you may feel if you were to work hard enough on that seemingly unworkable relationship things may get better for you and your special one.
Intimate relationship problems are unavoidable, that is the reason why having someone that you and the loved one can see together may save that relationship or marriage. So, if you feel the following are challenges in your intimate relationship, do not hesitate to consult with us.
