Tħossok li ma tista’ tafda lil ħadd?

Taħseb li l-mezzi soċjali jnaqqsulek il-kunfidenza fil-mod kif tidher?

> Does social media make you feel as if your life is meaningless?

Taħseb li l-mezzi soċjali jġegħluk tħossok inqas minn ħaddieħor?

Dan l-aħħar, qiegħed/qiegħda tiddubita mis-sesswalità tiegħek u qed tibża’ tgħid lil xi ħadd?

> Is school becoming very overwhelming?

Tħoss li l-iskola hija ta’ piż kbir għalik?

Child and Teen Therapy

Therapy provides children and teens with a ‘safe space’ to assist them to perceive their psychological and emotional difficulties in a novel manner. This may consequently enable them to feel less apprehensive, stigmatized and anxious. When children and youth go through life difficulties such as, bullying or lack of self-confidence they may endure a large range of painful emotions. Being able to talk openly to a mental health professional about their difficulties usually reduces the stress caused by these situations. Additionally, therapy may give them a sense that they are not ‘alone’ with their problems and might help them to view their worries clearly and with a new perspective. It may also give them an opportunity to get issues off their chest, which helps them to stop worrying, enhances their self-worth and may also lessen their sense of shame.

Therapeutic sessions are tailor-made to help the children and teens both emotionally and psychologically. During sessions, client -centred play and games are often used to help the clients feel comfortable and enjoy therapy so as to make it an enjoyable and safe experience. Counselling respects client’s confidentiality.
