Does My Child Need Therapy?

As a parent, I don’t think anything ever prepares you for the anguish of seeing your child unhappy. I just wanted to love their unhappiness away like I did when they were babies. I felt that I had fallen short as mother, powerless to help.

I suspect my experience is shared by many other parents. Amongst all this angst, I guess what most parents want to know is whether their child’s behaviour is in the “normal” range or a sign of a more serious issue that would benefit from counselling.

With public concern at an all-time high about children’s mental health and scary statistics flying around, parents and carers can feel confused and worried. Nobody wants their child to suffer unnecessarily, but counselling costs valuable time and money.  So how can parents and carers tell if their child would benefit from therapy?
