CHILD & TEEN COUNSELLING
Breaking The Chalk is passionate about youth mental health, and we continuously fight the stigma and raise awareness to shed light on the growing statistics and mental health struggles that our youth endure.
Our child & teen counselling is provided through teletherapy (online counselling sessions), focusing on the child's mental health and life challenges. When advised, parents are involved throughout the counselling journey.
Our counselling focuses on trauma, bullying, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, family challenges, coping mechanisms,
mental health life skills, ADHD, self-esteem, self-confidence,
co-dependency, problem resolution, and healthy development.
ALL ABOUT COUNSELLING
Teletherapy is providing counselling sessions virtually through an online platform.
You can have your sessions at the comfort of your home, and anywhere you are, making it more accessible and convenient.
Teletherapy helps with feeling less intimidated, more at ease, & able to share more.
Studies show that teletherapy is equally as effective as face to face.
In client-centred therapy, the practitioner (therapist) is non-directive and non-judgemental, and their role is one of support.
The client needs to be motivated to be in their therapeutic journey and have an active role in their support. The client directs the consultation whilst having guidance from the practitioner (therapist).
A critical theory in client-centred therapy is empathy and 'therapeutic genuineness' with positive regard to the client.
It is to see each client as an individual and treat them as such.
Art therapy, expressive therapy, uses art as a means for emotion and thought expression and communicates what they are going through.
It gives the therapist insight into the client's thoughts, mindset, and emotions through the client's expressive art.
It assists with self-awareness, sharing, and engagement through creative channels. It can alleviate anxiety, depression, and stress.
Art therapy helps to discuss and treat upsetting life events and trauma with a better understanding. It is also beneficial for those who struggle to understand and verbalise their emotions and thoughts.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations, and behaviours are interconnected. That negative thoughts and feelings can create a vicious cycle.
CBT helps you deal with overwhelming difficulties in positive and proactive ways by breaking them down into small parts. CBT focuses on current problems by changing unhelpful patterns to helpful.
CBT deals with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and eating disorders.
