Video Transcription

Therapy enables the child a safe and secure environment and space in which to talk things through. It’s a relationship that’s objective. It’s removed from the family members. And so, in that case, it takes away the sort of perhaps any fears they may have about burdening people in the family or fears of judgment in the family. So it’s a bit of a unique relationship. It’s a space where they can talk openly about what they’re feeling, and the therapist can help them to make sense of why they’re experiencing what they’re experiencing. And then hopefully come up with some strategies that can help them to manage those things better.
