At Psychological Solutions, high importance is placed on working with children and their
families to provide a well rounded approach to therapy. Therapy focuses on building resiliency
within the individual and the family unit.
Psychological Solutions offers a friendly, warm, fun environment where children learn to
regulate their emotions, express their thoughts and feeling with their families and work
towards joint outcomes.
Although children and adolescents are seen individually in session, therapists actively
encourage parent involvement, particularly in learning ways to support the child’s skill
development. Skill training is an essential part of helping children, so that parents feel
equipped with the skills necessary to support the strategies being taught in session.
As children spend the majority of their life between home and school, our therapists believe
that coaching parents and teachers in the strategies can also further support a child’s skill
development. Where appropriate, and with parent and child permission, therapists may work
with teachers and other support staff on strategies to support the child.
