Metro Atlanta Counseling for Children and Adolescents

Being a kid in today’s modern world is no easy task. Rates of childhood depression and anxiety are at an all-time high, and children and adolescents face dozens of pressures related to academic performance, social anxiety and peer pressure, social media exposure, and more. Some children must also cope with internal challenges, like attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

At CNSL, we know that as a parent, it can be heartbreaking to watch your child navigate these challenges, especially when doing so causes mental health issues or behavioral problems. For compassionate, effective counseling for children and adolescents, call our experienced therapists today. We are here to support you and your family when you need it most. 

Common Reasons for Child Counseling

You may consider seeking counseling services for your child if they are facing a range of behavioral issues or mental health concerns. Some triggers that can lead to behavioral or mental health problems include: 

  • Family issues, including fighting with parents or siblings, divorce or separation, death of a family member, etc.; 
  • School problems, including poor academic performance, social problems, feeling left out, etc.; 
  • Bullying, either at school or away from school; or
  • Health problems, such as struggling with a serious illness or disease.

These issues can lead to sadness, anxiety, feelings of social isolation, social anxiety, stress, worry, low self-esteem, grief, and depression. These feelings can also lead to more serious behavioral problems, including behavioral outbursts, bullying of other children, poor academic performance, and more.

How Therapy Works for Children and Adolescents

Kids and adolescents may need therapy when they are facing problems that they can’t cope with on their own. It can be hard for children—whose brains are still developing—to understand their emotions and manage their emotions in a way that is healthy and productive. Kids may need the structure and support of therapy to improve, and often, entire families can benefit from therapy together. 

While talk therapy may be a portion of a child’s or adolescent’s therapy experience, a therapist may employ other methods that are more appropriate for young minds. For example, playing and drawing may be effective options for young children. Other activities might include deep breathing and age-appropriate strategies for building mindfulness. Older kids may be asked to solve problems, either by talking through them or by role-playing.

Often, parents will join their children in therapy. It can be very helpful for parents to understand what their child is going through and learn strategies for working with their child.
