Child and Youth Therapist Toronto – Navigating through Divorce
Thousands of kids experience the stress of divorce each year. How they react depends on their age, personality, and the circumstances of the separation and divorce process.
Every divorce will affect the kids involved — and many times the initial reaction is one of shock, sadness, frustration, anger, or worry. But kids also can come out of it better able to cope with stress, and many become more flexible, tolerant young adults. Having your child or youth see a therapist during this time is extremely beneficial to help with the coping process.
Our child and youth therapist can help you and your child navigate through the divorce. We can help you create strategies to keep the conflict to a minimal, properly manage heated discussions or any legal talk. We can help you and your child plan to minimize the disruptions to daily activities and transition to your new routines and life styles. We also help facilitate and work to keep both parents involved positively in the child’s life. If you are going through a divorce or planning to start the process contact us today for help breaking the new to your children and to help them cope and adapt effectively throughout the process.
