Child Therapy

Child Therapy sessions are 1:1 with children or including parents in child focused sessions. Play therapy techniques are used for young children where the child uses playful, expressive arts and crafts, symbols, metaphor, role-play etc to help them express and process any issues. For older children creative techniques such as story, art & crafts or metaphor may be used alongside talking, according to the child’s needs.

An online parental meeting with one or both parents/care givers is required before a child can begin sessions. This is to discuss suitability for therapy, and gain background information on the child to ensure it is right for them. Parents or care givers are expected to play an active role in the child therapy process or engage in a Zoom or face to face sessions as needed.

Parent Coaching

Parent Coaching by Dr. Victoria Harris combines psychotherapeutic science and heart, to help ensure you do right by your child and yourself when faced with challenges. Parenting to meet you and your child’s emotional needs.

If you are a parent or caregiver directly responsible for the growing up of a child of any age, or expecting a child, then this can help you. Issues such as separation or divorce, loss and change can impact our child, and we may want and need some extra support. Maybe you are struggling with challenging behaviours, have questions about discipline, have a child who is anxious or has a low mood. Or maybe you just have some general questions and/or are wanting some affirmation that you are on the right track.

Your direct one-on-one work will be 60 minutes. Expectation is between 2 to 4 sessions.

Background Preparation

You will be asked to prepare a one-page background write up. More information about this will be provided to you upon booking.
