Child and Teen Counseling

Our children and teens are important to us and it is important to find additional support for them in times of behavioral and emotional stress. On the one hand, children impress us for their youthful strengths and resilience, and on the other hand we are concerned because they are vulnerable. We enjoy working with both children and teens in collaboration with parents, doctors, and teachers. Together we can find new ways to direct children toward their best capabilities. We use our concept of “sanctuary” with children and teens. This means that they are safe to express themselves and in this safe place they can try new, healthier behaviors.

We work with children and teens that are having difficulties with school and with relationships. We customize our work with each child and family so that the diagnosis does not get in the way of seeing the child as ain important individual. We look for strengths and build on these. We support parents in learning how they can restore a joyful feeling to their family life.
