Psychotherapy for children and adolescents is a complex of various techniques and measures to restore emotional health and behavioral reactions in children and adolescents. During the consultation, the psychotherapist takes into account all the factors that affect the formation of the child's personality, including the features of the social environment, ways of parenting in the family, the age and sex of the child, if necessary, prescribes additional examinations and medical treatment.

The appointment (consultation) of a psychotherapist for children and adolescents involves the assessment of the level of development, strengths and weaknesses of the child's personality, his/her abilities, inclinations as well as mental disorders, psychological problems, impaired interaction in the system of child-parent relations and recommendations on ways to correct the identified problems.

✔ One of the important skills of a psychotherapist is to create a trusting atmosphere, to be able to make a good impression to a child of any temperament and any age - from a hyperactive to a shy person, from a toddler to a teenager. Only with full trust is it possible to choose the most appropriate ways to influence the mental state, to establish a child's relationship with parents, teachers, peers, to teach him/her to manage him/her emotions.
