Integrative Child Psychotherapy provides a secure base and safe relationship, placing the child’s biopsychosocial needs and concerns at the centre of the therapeutic process. The therapist integrates theory, research and environmental understanding towards a deeper understanding of the child’s inner world and mental states.
A wide variety of therapeutic resources such as art materials, sand tray, miniatures and soft toys are available for the child to engage with and communicate their experiences safely and in confidence.
Integrative Child Psychotherapy is about working alongside parents, carers and school and may be used to help children with many issues, such as bullying, divorce, loss, aggression, problems at school, anxiety. At times a good therapeutic outcome may include both parent and child together in the therapeutic process.
