Child Therapy

Psychotherapy with children takes on a very different form, especially since children do not have the sophisticated vocabulary to express what’s happening in their lives and how they are feeling. Often times fears, hurt and sadness are manifested in the form of somatic complaints like tummy aches or headaches. Kavitha works closely with parents to help then identify and alleviate some of the troubling family issues by -

- Giving a name to children’s fears and anxieties
- Developing a set of coping strategies and give kids more control
- Temperament assessment for children and parents
- Sand tray activities to help kids process their internal conflicts
- Healthy strategies to deal with test and performance anxiety
- Explore traumatic experiences through creative exercises and imaginary play
- Tools for developing a healthy self-esteem and self-confidence
- Strategies for combating social anxiety
- Processing trauma from painful bullying experience
- Effective steps for handling ADHD/ADD symptoms and thriving in school
- Providing a healthy outlet for expressing grief from loss of a parent, friend or pet
