Childhood or adolescent difficulties

  • Does your child have delays in development of intellectual, academic, motor, communication or social skills?
  • Does your child have sudden rapid body movements or vocalizations that he or she can’t help doing (tics)?
  • Does your child have severe difficulty separating from you?
  • Has your child had behaviour problems that go far beyond the usual, and cause serious problems for the child and for others?
  • Is your child (or were you) hyperactive or easily distracted?

Children and adolescents can suffer from the entire range of mental health issues that can affect us at any age, but they may also struggle with special challenges.

  • Each child or adolescent with difficulties has unique characteristics and should be thoroughly assessed.
  • Every child or adolescent would benefit from connecting with a skilled psychotherapist.
