A therapist will choose the traditional form of therapy, referred to as talk therapy, for children who can confidently express themselves. Evidence-based treatment modalities such as, but not limited to, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) are used during this treatment.
Talk therapy is indicated for a wide variety of emotional problems, including:
The first session is always spent with the caregivers/parents without the child present. We use this session to gather information that will help us to assess, diagnose and treat your child or teen.
At the second session, both the parents and child join the therapist for the first 15 minutes to discuss the limits of confidentiality. After this, you’ll be asked to wait in the reception for the remainder of the session. We then deliver the most appropriate therapy for your child within a family-friendly environment.
Parental and family involvement is central to any treatment programme, and we encourage all parents to attend our Conscious Parent lecture series with Dr. Saliha Afridi.
