What is Children in Mind?

Children in Mind is clinical child psychology in today’s world. Mental, behavioural and emotional problems in children and adolescents have escalated in recent times. Some research has suggested that today’s children are more unhappy and anxious than they used to be. Children and teenagers are growing up in a very different world to the one in which most of us were raised. Today’s world is digital, fast-paced, unstable, socio-economically diverse and alienated from nature.

How do I know if my child or teenager needs a psychotherapist?

Children usually don’t usually use words to tell their parents and teachers they are suffering. They communicate instead through their ‘bad’, confusing, difficult or strange behaviour.

How does a child psychotherapist solve children's problems?

Child psychotherapists look carefully at a child’s presenting symptoms. They spend time getting to know the child in attempt to understand why he or she is struggling mentally. They ask parents for information about the child’s life and difficulties.
