Child therapy

Child therapy is significantly different from the therapy of adults. The psychologist gets acquainted with the child, and they will try to reveal and understand the possible causes of problems using games, tasks and tests suitable for the child’s age in a secure and safe environment. Unlike in adult therapy, conversation is not as prominent. In child therapy, playing, drawing, being creative, fantasy, playing with puppets and telling tales play a more significant role. These activities enable kids to present their problems, tensions or feelings so the difficulties become more accessible and can be processed.

Adolescents can contact a psychologist themselves. Parents do not need to be continuously involved when working with them, except for the cases and situations when the child’s life is in danger.
