Therapy for Children.

In psychotherapy work with children, we are completely reliant on the process of disclosure during therapy to allow construction and reconstruction of experiences or memories of young children and youth. It allows the child to feel safe whilst making sense of his/her experiences in the form of stories, play, art and music.


The construction and reconstruction of good and bad experiences, allows the child to derive a sense of control, attain a sense of mastery and containment after post traumatic experiences. Positive change can be

expected when children have the opportunity to have access to therapy.
