Children’s Emotional Wellbeing
Children can find it hard to cope with life sometimes, stress affects children in lots of different ways and their feelings of worry, sadness and anger, like adults, can feel just as overwhelming. Here at the wellbeing clinic we have a children’s mental health specialist who is trained and very experienced in helping children build resilience and learn how to manage their emotional world.
How our children’s emotional wellbeing worker can help:
We listen carefully to ensure we understand the current difficulties and decide together on the best way forward. This might involve individual sessions focussing on how to manage difficult thoughts and feelings or it could be time to talk so your young person can feel understood and begin to feel better.
When working with children and young people the aim is to reduce distress and help them to develop a strong sense of resilience (inner strength). We work with children and young people from birth to 18 years old although if young people are struggling to find the support they need we can extend the upper age!
Common Emotional wellbeing issues:
- Low mood
- Challenging behaviours and feelings (e.g. anger)
- Coping with stress, including exam stress and/or traumatic stress
- Loss and bereavement
- Relationship difficulties (at home or school)
- Poor sleep
- Bullying & difficulty making friends
Additional support: upon request we can offer parenting advice and support, assessments for children with complex presentations and group work with parents or young people on specific children’s mental health topics such as: attachment, anxiety, bullying/friendships, low mood, exam stress!
