Parental involvement in therapy is necessary when children receive CBT. Parents can ensure that their child engages in behavioural exercises between therapy sessions (e.g., in vivo exposures, pleasant activities), can change the child’s environment to promote more effective behaviours, and can help the child target changes in maladaptive thoughts. In general, CBT for children focuses more on behaviour changes and less on cognitive changes.

CBT is most effective when patients complete therapeutic exercises outside of the treatment session; therefore, it requires a significant commitment from patients. Some of the therapeutic strategies may involve anxiety-eliciting stimuli, which can be distressing—although short-lived—for some patients. CBT is not a substitute for pharmacotherapy for some disorders. For example, CBT should be considered an adjunctive treatment in the management of bipolar disorder, psychotic disorders, and depression with psychotic features.

There are frequent requests for sessions after school hours which will be accommodated as much as possible, however, if a child is only able to attend after school it can lead to significant delays in starting therapy due to the high demand.  It is helpful to state what availability a child has on the personal information form to assist with this.  I think it is very important families consider the need for mental health support and whether this takes priority over education for a time.  The therapist can liaise with school to help them consider any reasonable adjustments and they too can best support your child’s mental health.

There are a number of sessions available after usual working hours of 9-5pm to help those who may not be able to take time off work.  However, the request of evening appointments can lead to delays in starting therapy due to high demand.  It is helpful to state what availability you have on the Personal Information Form.

There are a number of mental health charities such as Mind and Young Minds which can provide mental health support and advice.  There maybe support available through your local authority so it’s worth checking out their website.  Every local authority has to have what is called a ‘local Offer’ so it is worth checking this out.  You also have NSH community mental health teams and child and adolescent mental health services that can provide mental health treatment, you can discuss a referral with you GP.  There can be very long waiting lists for therapy via the NHS so be prepared for this.  If you would like to discuss Healing Health fees and negotiate something more affordable, please contact us.
