Benefits Of Therapy

Therapy offers an empathetic environment where children, adolescents and adults can address difficulties with their emotions and behaviours. Although there are different types of therapy, each relies on the communication process as the basic tool for bringing about change in a person’s feelings and behaviour. Therapy may involve working with an individual child, adolescent, adult, group or family.

In working with children and adolescents, playing, drawing, building, talking and role play are important ways of sharing feelings and resolving problems. Individuals also receive emotional support, skills to resolve conflicts, insight to understanding feelings and problems, and guidance for implementing new solutions.

The goals of therapy may be specific (e.g. changing behaviour, improving relationships, reducing anxiety, managing mental health disorders), or they may be more general depending on the exact needs. The length of therapy depends on the complexity and nature of problems.

Parents can learn to manage discipline more effectively and gain cooperation from family members, while children can develop social skills, problem solving skills and increase their self-esteem. People of any age can grow and benefit from the experience of therapy.
