CHILD AND ADOLESCENT PSYCHOTHERAPY
Child and Adolescent Psychotherapists who are registered with the ACP have undergone a six year clinical training, with four years based in NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. We are trained to help children, young people and families where emotional and psychological difficulties are hard to understand or talk about. Analytic work enables us to look beneath the surface and explore the root of a problem rather than only treating the symptoms. We use play to help children communicate thoughts and feelings so these can be thought about and reflected on. This process can in itself reduce the need to act things out.
