          Psychologists can also provide safe and affirming care for LGBTQ+ kids and youth. Counselling for LGBTQ+ individuals can help make the transition easier in becoming your authentic self.

Having a person to speak to about your feelings can make the process much easier. 

           Why Seek out a Psychologist for Kids?

          Kids require therapy when their problems are impossible to manage on their own. They may also need assistance when their issues impact their quality of life, like well they are doing in all aspects of life or handling feelings and actions. If kids can’t get better on their own, therapy can give them the tools to improve their life. When combining therapy with support from family, kids can better communicate, learn, and set boundaries.

          If children require psychological help, treatment commonly begins when parents, teachers or school counsellors notice that children are struggling and not functioning well. Psychologists can provide children with coping tools and help them understand and deal with conditions like anxiety and depression, hyperactivity, conflicts with their family, and stressful life events like divorce or a family member’s death.
