Children and Young people

Children and Young people experience mental health just like adults and getting help can be hard, for both the young person and the parent. We just want our child to be happy and healthy. We offer specialist support for Children, Young People and Families experiencing a wide range of mental health, social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. If you are a parent or carer worried about your child’s mental health, there are a number of areas we can support with including (but not limited to):

  • Anxiety, worry, panic attacks
  • Separation and generalised anxiety
  • Attachment
  • Anger and difficulties managing emotions (emotional regulation)
  • Low self-esteem, low mood and depression
  • Identity and Culture
  • Social/emotional development and skills
  • Behaviours that are challenging and difficult to understand
  • Sleep problems
  • Adjustment to change including life transitions, school changes, family conflict and separations
  • Trauma including grief and bereavement

We work with children and young people of all ages, however the work with children can differ depending on the age of the young person and the difficulty they are having. Usually it is the parent/carer who is concerned and asking for support for their child and want to be involved in helping their child feel better. The process of working with children and young people can be complicated for this reason.

Dr Lakshman (Lucky) Ganatra, Dr Manjeet Susch and Reanne Texeria all offer therapeutic support to children and young people.

Below is a guide of how we usually work with children and young people.

We take confidentiality very seriously, even for children and young people. Where we work with a young person on their own, we will usually summarise a session for the parent. we discuss what information the young person would like to share and give my thoughts about what is important to share.

We try to encourage the young person to share this themselves, which empowers them to take control and responsibility for their mental health. Despite this, you may worry as parent about your child and want to know more.

We will always involve you in the therapy process, including reviews and important information and how session work will be agreed collaboratively between you, your child and myself in the first appointment.
