Finding the right child psychologist can be difficult. It is essential to find someone who knows how to put your child at ease. Someone with extensive experience working with children and who cares about the wellbeing of your children. The good news is that if you are looking for a child psychologist in Kenmore, you have already found one.
Our Approach to Child Counselling & Psychology
We offer a wide range of psychological services aimed at improving your child’s emotional state. We begin with play therapy. This puts your child at ease and we are able to access important information about the child’s thoughts and feelings without them having to tell us in words. Whatever the problem, we offer a supportive and calming environment to fully understand what your child is going through.
A Life Logic offers psychometric assessments and a special anxiety management program for children between the ages of 6 and 16. Our Kenmore-based child psychologist and counselling services can be beneficial on its own or in tandem with speech therapists, occupational therapists or psychologists.
Causes of Depression & Anxiety in Children
In particular, A Life Logic focuses on the following child psychologist services:
Most psychological and emotional challenges faced by children are often avoidable and treatable. Children are growing and new worlds are unfolding in front of their eyes – it is normal for children to experience internal issues with all the changes happening around them.
Remember: childhood is very important in a person’s life – what happens in childhood can have a profound influence on one’s future ability to cope with the daily challenges of adulthood.
An experience a child has had growing from childhood to adulthood impacts their actions as well as feelings. In fact, these experiences and events help shape the adult that a child develops into. Since these experiences are happening around them, it mostly affects their emotional and mental growth and to some extent, their social behaviours.
Common Symptoms of Children with Depression & Anxiety
According to the ADAA, children with depression may display these symptoms:
One cause of depression in children could be from school, where they are trying to adjust to the constant challenges of their environment, especially if it is a new school.
Bullying is also another cause of psychological problems in children. The more vulnerable they are, the more bullied they can be. An important solution to such an issue it would require counselling for both the bully and the bullied.
Family experiences and events like divorce, separation or death can have a heavy impact on a child’s psychological health. Good counselling from a professional psychologist will enable a child to become emotionally and mentally strong, which in turn will enable them to cope with issues and in the end, recover from a traumatic event.
It is important to keep in mind that children have their own special needs and so the counselling we provide is conducted in ways that caters for such needs. A child psychologist has to be tolerant, caring, compassionate and completely understanding of their current situation.
