At an online child behavioural therapy session (which is a form of cognitive therapy), we aim to minimize anxiety, help the child with alternative ideas.
The therapy focus on learning that feelings and moods alter behaviour. It helps the child to identify their inner thoughts and replace bad ones with positive productive thoughts. The therapist analyses the child’s behaviour and teaches them different ways to respond to situations in a positive way. Also by rewarding positive behaviours and punishing negatives.
Children with behavioural issues need to have some type of therapy that allows them to express themselves without consequences and then slowly build up their level of trust with the counsellor. Once this is done the child can begin to learn the reasons for their behaviour and what the trigger points are and how to deal with those issues once they arise.
