Psychotherapy Parents, Infants & Toddlers in Barrie

Parents may be concerned about feeding difficulties, temper tantrums or delays in normal development or may be worried about their own capacity to meet their infant's needs. Working together in psychotherapy can address issues such as understanding one another, facilitate communications and help build, restore or maintain a secure attachment bond.

Child & Adolescent Psychotherapy in Barrie

The sign of your child or adolescent's emotional distress is often evident in their behaviour.

Parents may notice an unexplained change in their child's/teen's behaviour - problems with mood, sleep, appetite, aggressive behaviour, social or academic functioning. Often these problems are the result of emotional distress and may interfere with a child's development.

Adverse events may also cause emotional distress: the death of a family member or friend; major illness in the family; divorce; a move; abuse; trauma; or school stresses such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure.

In psychotherapy, thinking and talking with a therapist helps children/adolescents to make sense of and understand their troubled thoughts and feelings.

Goals for therapy may be specific such as addressing a significant life event, changes in behaviour, improved relations with family or friends, or more general such as less anxiety or better self-esteem.

The overall goal of psychotherapy is to enhance or restore your child's emotional and social well being and capacity to learn.

Adult Psychotherapy

Individuals seek psychotherapy for a variety of reasons. Often they are struggling with depression, stress, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, loss, relationships difficulties, low self esteem, lack of confidence, life transitions, family and/or work related difficulties, self destructive or other destructive behaviours. These troubling issues could be related to current life circumstances or arise from past or early life trauma. Other people seek psychotherapy as a means to expand their desire to grow, develop their potential and explore greater meaning in their lives.
