The stresses and strains of everyday life don’t only affect adults. Although we like to think that childhood is a time of happiness and innocent, unfortunately as many as 20% of children experience some sort of mental health problem each year. These can include anxiety, depression, grief, self-harm, and even post-traumatic stress disorder. Although these can be derived from life events, sometimes there is no known cause for a child to experience psychological traumas such as these. Regardless, they still need professional help to stabilize their emotional climate and to help them to develop and grow into secure, healthy and happy teenagers and beyond. Since children typically think very differently to adults, child counseling is a specialty area which uses the best techniques to get them to open up and make a positive difference to their lives.
