One in five children suffer from a mental health or learning disorder and 80 percent of chronic mental health disorders begin in childhood. Some children are predisposed to anxiety or depression because of genetics and brain chemistry.

Early intervention can be key to a child’s long-term well-being. With the help of a qualified child therapist, your son or daughter can discover his or her strengths, get in touch with emotions and develop the self-care skills needed to foster calm and confidence throughout his or her life. Counseling for children may help your family.

Each group will have a specific focus and may be more or less structured depending on the topic and the nature of the group.Group therapy might initially sound intimidating, but research has shown that that group therapy is a rewarding and beneficial practice, providing a network of support and aiding recovery.
