Parent-led Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Is your child experiencing anxiety and you are finding it difficult to support them?

Would you like the tools to help your child now and in the future?

Parent-led CBT is a treatment option that can help empower you with the tools to support your child in managing their anxiety. Traditional therapies would have predominately been with the child for 1 hour per week and parents might not have been given the tools to manage the behaviour they were experiencing at home.

The parent-led CBT approach believes that the parents are the agent of change for their child, they are with their child the vast majority of the time and therefore can have a greater impact on supporting their child’s anxiety.

Session 1 is an assessment session to gather a full family background in order to tailor a treatment plan that is best for your individual circumstances.

Session 2&3 focus on psychoeducation and implementation of strategies. We will explore what anxiety is, how it is impacting your child and start to introduce strategies that you can implement within the home and bring them back to the session to review.

Session 4 is a review of our learnings and mapping out a plan going forward.
