Children may struggle with managing their emotions, which can lead to frequent outbursts, anxiety, or mood swings.
Anxiety and stress
Kids can experience anxiety related to school, social situations, family changes, or other stressors. This may manifest as school refusal, separation anxiety, or generalized anxiety.
Children may have difficulty making friends, engaging in age-appropriate social interactions, or dealing with bullying or peer conflicts.
Kids who have experienced traumatic events, such as abuse, accidents, or natural disasters, may exhibit post-traumatic stress symptoms that require professional intervention.
Some children may struggle with age-appropriate milestones, such as toilet training, sleep difficulties, or attachment issues.
Self esteem and confidence
Low self-esteem can affect a child's self-worth, relationships, and overall well-being.
This can encompass a range of issues, such as aggression, defiance, disobedience, temper tantrums, or difficulty following rules.
Struggles with schoolwork, learning disabilities, attention difficulties, or a lack of motivation can lead to academic underachievement and may prompt parents to seek counseling.
Changes in the family dynamic, such as divorce, blended families, or loss of a loved one, can lead to emotional and behavioural problems.
Grief and loss
Coping with the death of a family member, friend, or pet can be challenging for children, and counselling can help them process their feelings and grief.
Attention and hyperactivity issues
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can significantly impact a child's behavior and academic performance.
Gender and sexuality
Kids may experience difficulties related to their gender identity or sexual orientation.
You look at me and cry: everything hurts. I hold you and whisper: but everything can heal.
