Individual Therapy

Adolescent Therapy

Adolescence is a particularly difficult time in our lifecycle. Adolescents become preoccupied with their internal world, a phenomenon called ‘adolescent egocentrism, and they believe that the feelings they are experiencing are unique to them. In addition, many teens feel that everyone is judging them, a phenomenon referred to as imaginary audience. Therapy helps adolescents to make a smoother transition into young adulthood and to deal with the following issues:

-        Body image issues

-        Eating Disorders

-        Sexual acting out

-        Challenging Authority

-        Cyber Bullying

-        Gaming Addiction

 

Therapy helps children and adolescents to:

-        Control their worries,

-        Improve attention span,

-        Manage anger and acting out,

-        Increase frustration tolerance,

-        Strengthen impulse-control,

-        Improve assertiveness,

-        Withstand peer-pressure

Our therapists engage children in both play therapy and narrative therapy and our child treatment room is designed to provide children with interactive and stimulating environment which draws them into the therapeutic process by delivering interventions through child-friendly media, such as computer exercises, draw erase board and therapeutic board games. Being parents ourselves we know the importance of building rapport with our youngest clients by relating to them through their world. In conjunction in working directly with the children, our clinicians also work with the parents to improve parenting skills and design behavioral modification plans to shape the desired behavior of the child through positive reinforcement.

Adult Therapy

Through the process of therapy-facilitated introspection adults gain insight into their psychic and social dynamics, analyze core beliefs that sustain their deficiencies and learn to recognize their strengths and change their dysfunctions by adopting positive thoughts and behaviors.
