VOICE FOR CHILDREN & NURTURING FAMILIES
Individual therapy is for children, adolescents and adults in need of therapy. Typically the individual attends the session alone, however because support from others is importance during the therapeutic process we often speak and or include other family members when necessary (such as seeking a child or adolescent)
In individual therapy the therapeutic process occurs directly between the therapist and client. Various concerns and struggles are discussed and processed during the session. Evidenced based and best practice techniques and interventions are suggested and learned for the purpose of healing, changing old patterns and behaviors with new knowledge, emotions, skills and behaviors.
Listed below some issues addressed during therapy.
Neglect and Abuse

Running away, defiance, arguing, lying, stealing, bullying
Self-harm, or “cutting”
