What is therapy like for a child and/or family?

Every therapy session is unique and caters to each individual and their specific goals. It is standard for therapists to discuss the primary issues and concerns during therapy sessions. It is common to schedule a series of weekly sessions, where each session lasts 45-50 minutes. Therapy can be short-term, focusing on a specific issue, or longer-term, addressing more complex issues or ongoing personal growth. There may be times when you or your child are asked to take certain actions outside of the therapy sessions, such as reading a relevant book or keeping records to track certain behaviors. This process integrates the help into your life between sessions. For therapy to be most effective, you and/or your child must be an active participant, both during and between the sessions. People seeking psychotherapy deveop willingness to take responsibility for their actions, work towards self-change and  therefore, create greater awareness in their lives. Here are some things you can expect out of therapy:


  • Compassion, respect and understanding for self or family members 
  • Perspectives to illuminate persistent patterns and negative feelings
  • Real strategies for enacting positive change
  • Effective and proven techniques along with practical guidance
