Psychotherapy aims to help a person understand their feelings and equip them to face new challenges, both in the present and the future.
Psychotherapy is similar to counseling, and the two can overlap. However, the former tends to look more deeply, addressing the underlying causes of a person’s problems as well as how to solve them.
To see positive results, a person will usually need to understand the need for change and be willing to follow the treatment plan as the specialist advices. They will also need to find a suitable therapist they can trust.
Psychotherapy can help when depression, low self-esteem, addiction, bereavement, or other factors leave a person feeling overwhelmed. It can also help treat bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and certain other mental health conditions.
Parental counselling is a type of service that aims to provide the necessary knowledge, tools, guidance, and most especially support to parents without bias or judgment. This way, they become more fully equipped to take care of their children.
There are fundamental differences between life coaching and counseling. Counseling usually investigates the causes and roots of potential problems, on the contrary life-coaching focuses mainly on the future, encouraging self-improvement and personal development.
Child psychotherapy helps children and young people to make sense of sad, angry, painful or confusing feelings and thoughts. It usually has a beneficial effect on relationships at home and on behaviour, as children become less preoccupied or better able to concentrate. Most children can then make better use of opportunities at school.
Child psychotherapists are trained to help children understand feelings that are not possible to speak out loud. They do this through play, drawing and talking about events and experiences.
Psychotherapy can help with a range of issues including:
- behaviour difficulties
- low self esteem
- self harm
- post traumatic symptoms
Children may be reacting to life events which everyone knows about or it may be that difficulties have started without any obvious cause.
Child psychotherapists can help children to deal with learning and physical disabilities. They can help children on the autistic spectrum.
Speech therapy is the assessment and treatment of communication problems and speech disorders. It is performed by speech-language pathologists (SLPs), which are often referred to as speech therapists.
Speech therapy techniques are used to improve communication. These include articulation therapy, language intervention activities, and others depending on the type of speech or language disorder.
Speech therapy may be needed for speech disorders that develop in childhood or speech impairments in adults caused by an injury or illness, such as stroke or brain injury.
Occupational therapy (OT) is a branch of health care that helps people of all ages who have physical, sensory, or cognitive problems. OT can help them regain independence in all areas of their lives.
Occupational therapists help with barriers that affect a person’s emotional, social, and physical needs. To do this, they use everyday activities, exercises, and other therapies.
OT helps kids play, improves their school performance, and aids their daily activities. It also boosts their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment. With OT, kids can:
- Develop fine motor skills so they can grasp and release toys and develop good handwriting or computer skills.
- Improve eye–hand coordination so they can play and do needed school skills such as bat a ball and copy from a blackboard.
- Master basic life skills such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing teeth, and self-feeding.
- Learn positive behaviors and social skills by practicing how they manage frustration and anger.
- Get special equipment to help build their independence. These include wheelchairs, splints, bathing equipment, dressing devices, and communication aids.
