Because each child has a unique set of needs, the methods and aims of counseling will differ from child to child.

The challenges of conflict in the home, the trauma of bullying, divorce or single-parent households, the pressure to ‘fit in’—all of these can negatively impact a child’s self-esteem and can lead to more serious concerns. In addition to such environmental and social obstacles, some children suffer from behavioral and/or mental health issues that hinder normal development. Many of us are used to hearing about children diagnosed with ADHD or Aspergers Syndrome, but a child can also suffer from depression or anxiety.

Many problems in a child’s life are short-lived and can be resolved without outside intervention. However, you may become concerned if your child’s behavior indicates a more serious or chronic issue. Some of the most common warning signs that something is wrong with a child include: social withdrawal, difficulty controlling emotion, poor impulse control, and behavioral problems. The most important thing to remember is to trust your instincts. Parents can usually tell if something is wrong with their child.
