Before we answer this particular question, we would like to emphasise the importance of your child being a willing participant. When seeking any online self-help support for a young person it is crucial that your child is 'on board' with the decision to undertake a self-help approach. Whether a client is an adult or under age, a person should never be pushed into making changes against their wishes, a client should always be a willing participant.
We will never put your child into a position where they might feel they could fail. Our biggest aim is to always ensure your child is treated as a valuable person who is allowed to have an input in this process. It is about them achieving things in order to create self-confidence and giving them a sense of empowerment by gaining control over their life. A child will find such methods easier to comprehend and will generally engage better with the activities. In this way, they will achieve results which will advance their confidence in other areas as well.
Be assured, if you decide to proceed with an online self-help program for your child, you are receiving a specialised program that takes young people’s interest and attention span into consideration. Your child will feel supported, secure and willing to open up to new ideas with regard to altering their response towards whatever issues they are faced with. Our approach is adapted to each individual topic while bearing in mind the need for sensitivity and attention to the aptitude of young people.
As examples, any techniques applied will be full of positive re-enforcements to help your child shift any negative beliefs, when demonstrating techniques, we include visual clues and take extra care explaining and guiding your child through the activities. Further, based on our experience, we are conscious of the shorter attention span of some children and young people, therefore, the sessions are kept varied and engaging but without exhausting your child. The additional benefit with doing an online self-help program is the fact that your child can go at their own pace, as well as re-visiting exercises and activities.
