Children and Young People
Children and young people have many advantages in today’s society, but they also have many pressures. Sometimes these become overwhelming, and can be expressed through behaviours which are unhelpful, and sometimes distressing, to the child or adolescent as well as for those around them. Stress, anxiety, and trauma can also be expressed through physical illness. The earlier that young people have help in addressing these symptoms and behaviours, the more quickly and completely they can get back on track and move on; they will be happier, and their families will be happier. It’s never too early to address emotional issues, but it can sometimes be unnecessarily difficult when it’s left too late.
One of the most precious gifts we can give our children is the resilience to cope with whatever challenges life may put in their paths. Resilience techniques are learnt best when children and young people are thriving. Sarah offers resilience training either towards the end of counselling, or to flourishing children and young people as a stand-alone.
