Parent-Toddler/Child Therapy

Sometimes toddlers and children can develop behaviours that really worry parents. Toddlers can appear angry and have difficulty calming down, or children can appear anxious or depressed for no apparent reason. We understand how perplexing this can be for parents. When attempts to modify or control the behaviour have failed then parent-child therapy can help resolve these impasses. Often these behaviours are a result of an underlying distress that is difficult to figure out.

Parent-child therapy aims to work with parents to figure out the child’s underlying internal states that result in the behaviour, Thus we create the opportunity to repair the distress, and the behaviour usually falls away. We believe that the best resource for a child is the parent and helping parents develop the capacity to make sense of their child is a lifelong and valuable parenting skill.
