As a parent, your child and their health are among the most important things in your life, and you’ll do anything to ensure their happiness. What happens, however, when nothing seems to be sparking joy in your child anymore? Or if they are experiencing angry outbursts, prolonged bouts of anxiety or issues concentrating? At Life Insight, a Westmont child therapist can meet one-on-one with your child to work through the stresses in their life and get to the root of their troubles.
While every child goes through rough patches in their life, whether that be transitioning from preschool to grade school or having to deal with a problem among their friends, it’s important to recognize when it’s more than just a bump in the road. Some of the most common signs your child is struggling and needs help working through their troubles with a Westmont child therapist include:
While a few items on this list, such as changes in eating and sleeping habits, can be caused by simple occurrences in life such as experiencing a growth spurt, if you notice a prolonged shift in normal behaviors and strong negative emotions, it may be time to reach out to a Westmont child therapist.
Working with a licensed Westmont child therapist can help your child identify their feelings and learn to manage negative or overwhelming thoughts. There are several conditions and issues that our licensed therapists can assist your child with, including:
While each of our Westmont child therapists has different approaches to therapy, we mainly utilize play therapy. Play therapy is a highly effective form of therapy that allows therapists to observe and learn about what is bothering your child. We use one-on-one sessions that provide children with a fun, productive way to learn important skills to work through their feelings constructively. Through play, your child is provided the skills they need to learn to take responsibility for their actions, gain empathy for others, build their social skills, and find creative ways to solve problems.
Keeping your child healthy involves more than focusing on their physical wellbeing. Ensuring that your child’s mental health is in a strong, positive state is just as important as getting 30 minutes of exercise a day and eating fruits and vegetables. Having your child regularly meet with a Westmont child therapist is one of the best ways to help support and strengthen their mental health. Through various forms of therapy, including play therapy, our therapists can provide your child with the tools and outlets they need to constructively express their emotions while simultaneously learning positive ways to cope with these feelings when not in session.
