The Child Therapy List is a global online directory of mental health professionals. Members who list their services on this directory provide expert, child competent services and support. This directory is expanding and not at all complete or final, and is designed to provide you with the best place to begin if you are looking for mental health support in your area, or for a specific issue. Please note that having a listing in this directory does not imply that the mental health provider is, in any way, endorsed by The Child Therapy List. And while The Child Therapy List does verify that all our members are credentialed, we highly recommend that you visit their websites and check with the professional licensing bodies in your state or province or region to make sure that the provider is licensed, in good standing, and eligible to practice in your state, province or region.
Decrease the stigma. Do not shame others because they go to therapy. In fact, I believe that therapy is for everyone. You do not need to have a mental health issue, in order to go to therapy. There is enough everyday stress that can be talked about and processed.
Child comes in to a playroom/therapy room and therapist would ask the child what he/she wants to do today and follow the child’s lead. Play therapy is child-centered/child lead. After the session, I would briefly tell parents what we did and if there is anything they need to watch for or do in between sessions.
