Childhood and adolescence can be difficult times. Pressures from school, social expectations and changes in your body and mind can cause young people to experience stress and anxiety. While some worry about school work or mood changes during puberty are normal, mental health disorders can affect young people just as they affect adults.
If your child is diagnosed with a mental health disorder it can be distressing for you as a parent as you try to understand what they are going through and feel responsible for finding the best treatment available to help them recover. Our child behavioural psychologists understand how important your child’s emotional wellbeing is to you, and our expert child mental health services in Sydney can help your child through difficult times and set them on the road to recovery.
For a young person the most important part of healthy emotional development is the environment in which they are brought up. A child’s early years will form the blueprint on which they base all future interactions and will have a lasting effect on how they view the world around them. Neglectful, abusive or over-protective parenting styles can lead to issues like anxiety and depression in children and lead to further difficulties in adulthood.
Even if you raise your children with the upmost care and love you can’t control every aspect of their environment. School can be a difficult place for children as bullying and work demands can lead to low self-esteem and social anxiety disorders. Furthermore there are factors in your children’s genes which can make them more pre-disposed to developing mental health issues.
Mental and emotional struggles can look very different in young people than in adults, and distinguishing the symptoms of emotional disorders from normal childhood shyness or teenage moodiness isn’t always easy. Be on the lookout for the following symptoms in your child:
Any of these signs experienced regularly for more than a few weeks can be indicative of mental health disorders like anxiety or depression. They could also suggest the presence of issues like low self-esteem and social anxiety, or issues surrounding anger disorder and stress. If you have concerns for your child’s wellbeing and you live in the Sydney area then Angus Munro Psychology are here to help.
Our child clinical psychologists are experts in detecting symptoms in young people and delivering effective therapy in a way that’s right for children of any age. Our child therapists will work with you and your child to help you identify feelings or worry, anger or low self-worth that might be causing difficulties. We will then help your child develop new ways of thinking and provide them a safe outlet for their worries and emotions.
Effective child assessment must also involve you as the parent. Our child psychologists can offer guidance on how to help your child through the feelings and thoughts they are experiencing, and teach you emotion and behaviour management techniques for you to pass on to your child. We also offer help with managing difficult behaviour and good parenting strategies to make sure your child has a healthy and supportive environment in the long run.
