Therapy for

8 to 12 year olds

Therapy for children between the ages of 8 and 12 can be a valuable tool in helping them navigate the complex emotions and challenges that come with growing up, especially in todays world. They are trying to develop their sense of self and identity, which can be influenced by social and cultural factors.  Their bodies are changing and so are their behaviors. You will notice struggles with peer relationships as they begin to navigate more complex social dynamics and may experience bullying or exclusion. Academically, children may face challenges with schoolwork and homework as they are expected to take on more responsibilities and manage their time effectively. Additionally, this age group may also experience anxiety related to performance and social situations. As they begin to understand the concept of mortality, they may also experience fears and anxieties related to death and loss.


These challenges can be overwhelming and may benefit from the support of a therapist. Therapy can help children learn coping skills and develop a deeper understanding of their thoughts and feelings. Our therapy techniques can be particularly effective for this age group, as they provide a creative outlet for children to express themselves.
