It has recently become widely accepted that children and adolescents are increasingly suffering from mental health issues, particularly in view of the recent pandemic.
Radio and television programmes, and newspapers, frequently discuss the issues that children face nowadays. As a result we have recently noticed an increase in the number of children and adolescents visiting our Practice for help.
How can we help with children’s issues?
Over the last 13 years Clem and Margaret Turner have developed their own successful programme for working with a variety of different issues and problems children and adolescents can be faced with. The programme is an eclectic approach which improves the speed at which children can overcome their issues and difficulties.
Their unique system has been specifically designed to deal with the issues faced by children in today's challenging world. In fact Clem and Margaret also now run Training Courses to teach other therapists their methods, so that they too can work successfully with children and adolescents.
How does it help children?
There are a range of treatments within the programme. These treatments stimulate the imagination of children in order to assist them in their problems. A child naturally has a vivid imagination and the doorway between the conscious and the subconscious mind is imagination.
The Programme is a combination of the following treatments:
- Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
- Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
- Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH)
When children experience stress or are worried, they can exhibit different signals, although they may not be aware of them. An experienced therapist can pick up on those signals and create a suitable treatment programme.
With the right approach, and with the support of the parents, children's issues can certainly be treated successfully.
