Child and Adolescent Pyschoanalytic Psychotherapist
A child psychotherapist will work with a child and sometimes also with the parents in relation to a range of potential difficulties.
The therapist will be interested in how your child thinks, feels and learns. An understanding of developmental psychology enables an understanding of the child’s perspective which can help parents to consider the world from the child or young person’s point of view.
Your therapist may work with you to come to a shared understanding of the different factors underlying your concerns and provide the space and support to enable you to find a way forward.
