Is Emotional Regulation an issue for your Child?

Counselling skills are used to help your child understand their emotions and possibly, although not necessarily, to identify the source of the struggle within. Behaviour Therapy will then be supportive of the child or young person in the development of skills to manage emotions from the inside, for themselves.

Children develop behaviours that help them to manage their lives in one way or another. Some of these behaviours are helpful and other not so. Some children seem to pick up internal self management skills by osmosis along lifes journey. Other children seem to require very deliberate and specific skill development.

When we think about emotions we most usually think of the emotions that impact on others if children struggle to self manage. These include anger, frustration, boredom, loneliness, jealousy and over excitement .
