Janine King, a clinical psychologist, explains how to approach talking to your child about having therapy, how it’s a non-threatening environment and that there’s no long-term commitment. https://www.thechelseapsychologyclinic.com Chelsea Psychology Clinic are a group of London psychologists and psychiatrists offering private psychological therapy and psychiatry treatment from their premises across central London and Chelsea. The private therapy sessions cover the following areas: – Acceptance & Commitment Therapy – Cognitive Analytic Therapy – Cognitive-behavioural Therapy – Couples Therapy – Dialectical-behaviour Therapy – Mentalisation Based Treatment – Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy – Schema Therapy
I think very much make it clear to them that there is no long-term commitment. By coming to one appointment it’s really just gonna be a case of just talking through sort of things in a very non-threatening sort of way. So by coming to it nothing is going to be done to them nothing’s going to… they’re not making any commitment. They’re just coming along to find out a little bit more about what therapy involves. And if they don’t wanna come back after that then there’s no pressure to. So yeah so really just taking that sense of uncertainty away about what it involves and just being clear that it is non-threatening.
