Children’s and Young Persons Therapy in Manchester

Therapy for Children and Young Adults

At City Centre Therapy and City Centre Counselling we understand that children and young adults face unique challenges and experiences as they navigate through their formative years. Our therapy services are tailored to meet the emotional and mental health needs of this younger demographic in a compassionate, understanding, and effective manner.

The demands of the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) can mean a long waiting list, which is normally only started when your person needs it the most. We can provide your person with the therapy they need privately with no waiting list.

Child-Cantered Approach

For children, therapy is a journey of exploration and discovery. Our child therapists use a variety of techniques, including play therapy, art therapy, and narrative therapy, to help children express themselves in ways that are natural and comfortable for them. We create a safe and welcoming environment where children can explore their feelings, thoughts, and behaviours without judgment.

Adolescent Support

Adolescence is a time of significant change and growth. Our therapists are skilled in connecting with young adults, providing a supportive space where they can openly discuss and navigate the complexities of their lives. Whether it’s dealing with academic stress, social pressures, family dynamics, or personal challenges, we are here to listen and guide.

Family Involvement

We believe in the power of family support in the therapeutic process. When appropriate, we involve family members in therapy sessions. This approach can help improve communication, strengthen relationships, and develop effective strategies for dealing with family issues.

Evidence-Based Practices

Our therapy methods are grounded in evidence-based practices. We stay updated with the latest research in child and adolescent psychology to provide the most effective care. Our therapists are trained in various modalities, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and mindfulness techniques, tailored to suit the age and needs of our clients.

Empowering Young Minds

Our goal is not just to address the challenges faced by children and young adults but to empower them with skills and insights that will serve them for life. We focus on building resilience, enhancing self-esteem, and fostering a positive outlook towards life’s challenges.

Confidential and Safe

We uphold the highest standards of confidentiality and ethical practice. Our young clients’ privacy and safety are our top priority, and we provide a secure space where they can feel safe to share and grow.
