Problems with school or peers

Many children and adolescents struggle at school, regardless of their age or intelligence. Whether they feel like they don’t “fit in,” tend to stress about exams and homework, or avoid schoolwork altogether, there are ways to help your child adjust and identify their strengths so they can have a bright future. We commonly see children and teens who need help with:

  • Declining school performance

  • Fights over grades and homework

  • Dealing with bullying

  • Social isolation

  • Relationship struggles with peers

  • Stress, anxiety and excessive worrying

  • Difficulty adjusting to a new environment

  • Learning social skills

  • Dealing with blended family issues

  • Adapting to a change in school or environment

  • Reducing power struggles
