How Can I support my child or adolescent during sessions?
You can help by passing on as much information as possible about your child's past and present circumstances. This will enable our therapist to know how to best help your child.
Our therapist will you meet before, during and at the end of the work to review and monitor the sessions and to give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. Session content will remain confidential but our therapist will be happy to discuss progress.
You will be asked to fill in a questionnaire highlighting the strengths and difficulties you feel your child has at the beginning and at the end of the work.
Although it is intended for the sessions to be enjoyable for your child, it is also likely that they may have faced some important issues and emotions, even if the child is not entirely aware of it. This can be quite unsettling for the child, and sometimes things get worse before they get better.
It is helpful if the child knows that they can talk to you about the sessions and their feelings if they wish, but only when they are ready to do so.
