Child, Adolescent and Young Adult Therapy

We can work with you and your child to ensure positive outcomes for all through specialist child therapy

When you have a child that is ill you want help as soon as possible, often parents contacting us have been on a roller coaster of referrals and waiting lists which only adds to the stress for both the parent and child.

Further sessions are £60.

Are you experiencing difficulties with anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, self-harm or any other mental health issues?

There are many reasons why a child or teenager can suffer from mental health problems. Whatever the difficulty we can help you and your child through the toughest times and offer positive outcomes through specialist therapy .

Our philosophy at Teenage Mental Health is that the patient always comes first and is the centre of any work.

We look forward to hearing from you.

We can help with

Anxiety
Anxiety

This is a very normal emotion to experience, however sometimes, and for some people it can go from being a manageable feeling to one that totally invades their lives, making normal life and interactions almost impossible. We at Teenage Mental Health have years of experience treating children and adolescents suffering anxiety issues, and aim to get children to a place where they are able to better manage their anxiety and start enjoying their lives again.

Self Harm
Self Harm

As a parent we would never allow anyone to harm our child either physically or emotionally. So perhaps this is one of the conditions that we struggle most with, our child is deliberately harming themselves. Watching your child maim themselves, and trying to stop them can be torturous for family members. We at Teenage Mental Health can help stop the cycle of self harm, and help your child engage better with the reasons they do these behaviours, helping them to find other ways of expressing their emotions.

Depression
Depression

Feeling low from time to time is normal but when these low feelings are persistent and unrelenting it can feel as if there is no longer any joy in life. Children like adults can suffer from depression at any time in their lives and we at Teenage Mental Health are here to help your child find a way out of this low period and move on to a bright and happy future.

Social Isolation
Social Isolation

Not everyone makes friends easily, and sometimes keeping those friends can be difficult. Childhood is a time when healthy friendships are vital, and some children  can become socially isolated from their peers. We at Teenage Mental Health are able to work with your child to help them think about and process their social interactions, to help them become better at engaging with their peers and others.

Suicide
Suicide

One of the most difficult things we can ever hear our child say is that they want to kill themselves, and sadly some children do successfully take their own lives. We have years of experience working with suicidal patients and can help your child work through these painful and difficult feelings, so that they are better able to process and cope with them to enable positive outcomes.

Gender Issues
Gender Issues

Childhood can be a difficult time for some, especially if they feel they are different from others. Questioning your sexuality and gender are normal, however for some this questioning can provide answers that they struggle with or find hard to express to others. We at Teenage Mental Health can help your child work through this process, and become comfortable in their own skin.

Insecurity
Insecurity

Not everyone makes friends easily, and sometimes keeping those friends can be difficult. Childhood is a time when healthy friendships are vital, and some children  can become socially isolated from their peers. We at Teenage Mental Health are able to work with your child to help them think about and process their social interactions, to help them become better at engaging with their peers and others.

Alcohol & Drugs
Alcohol & Drugs

Some children experiment with these products and then leave well alone however for some it becomes a way of life, leaving destruction in its path. We at Teenage Mental Health can help your child find their way out of these destructive and damaging behaviours ultimately helping them to a healthier happier life.

Adult Therapy
Adult Therapy

We are not just here for children and adolescents, in fact our age range for services is 2-102 and we work with many adults experiencing mental health struggles.
All our therapists are qualified to work with adults and over 25% of our patient base are adults over the age of 25, so please don’t let our name deter you from approaching us for help.
