Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can be very effective for kids who are anxious. In fact, research over more than 20 years has shown that CBT is the most effective treatment for reducing symptoms of severe anxiety. And unlike taking medication, the therapy gives children the tools to manage the anxiety themselves, now and in the future.
Cognitive behavioural therapy is based on the idea that how we think and act both affect how we feel. By changing thinking that is distorted, and behaviour that is dysfunctional, we can change our emotions. With younger children, focusing first on the behavioural part of CBT can be most effective.
The goal is, essentially, to unlearn avoidant behaviour.
All sessions are via zoom.
