The Benefits of Child Counselling and Therapy
Through the therapy process, children can change their personal view of events in the world and begin to develop and improve their emotional and social interactions.
Child Therapy NI will benefit children and adolescents with:-
• Low Self-Esteem

• Behaviours which interfere with making and keeping friends.
• Problems eating, or sleeping
• Difficulty adjusting to family changes
• Excessive shyness, withdrawn or low social skills.
• Attached Depression etc.
A benefit of therapy is that children can create therapeutic play at their own developmental level. The relationship with the therapist also allows children a sense of security when recreating emotionally stressful experiences. Children like to play. They are often unable to understand and talk about their feelings the way adults do so this makes adult therapies inappropriate. Play becomes therapeutic to children, as it gives expression to their experiences and emotions.
