Following a clinical assessment, intervention may be recommended and provided by one of our team members either individually for both child and adult clients, or in combination with parent training for our child clients. The interventions that we offer entails a wide variety of methods according to the problems at hand. After assessments, we usually custom the intervention to the needs of our clients and we prioritize the intervention towards the most pressing issues.
Individual Therapy for Children
Individual therapy sessions with a child entail meeting initially with the parents to discuss concerns, followed by working one-on-one with the child to commence therapy and target such concerns. We ensure that parents are involved in individual therapy sessions and inform parents at the end of each session about the skills being taught and strategies that can be implemented in the home environment in order to assist their children.
Individual Therapy for Adults
Individual therapy sessions with an adult entails meeting and discussing with the client on how to help him or her by looking at the client’s expectations and goals of the therapy. The session can also include the individual’s family members or spouse if agreed by the client.
