OCD Counselling & Therapy For Children
While OCD can pose enormous challenges in a child's life, it is something that can be managed with proper counselling and therapy. Your child is not alone, OCD affects thousands of children. Our counselling and therapy will help with their obsessions, compulsions and rituals.
What are Obsessions & Compulsions?Obsessions are unwanted, distressing thoughts & images, or upsetting worries that keep coming back into a child's head, no matter how hard they try to block them out. To cope or try to stop with these obsessions children will then carry out an associated compulsions. These repetitive routines, rituals, and mental checks can include constant hand washing, checking doors & windows, obsessive cleaning, organising & counting. These compulsions provide only short term relief and in fact strengthen the reciprocal relationship between the obsessions and the compulsive behaviour.
How We Can HelpWith our counselling & therapy, we will help your child understand and modify their beliefs and behaviours associated with OCD. We will support them through any problems brought to the sessions, no matter how big or small, and develop practical strategies such as acceptance, distraction and redirection of thoughts to help manage the obsessions.
