Therapy and Your Child After Lockdown

Therapy and Your Child After Lockdown

The coronavirus pandemic and experiencing a global lockdown have been stressful enough for adults, so can you imagine how children are feeling? More parents than ever are finding their kids need support since lockdown ended, so you’re not alone if you have as well. At Innerspace Counseling, we’re committed to providing counseling services for children throughout New Jersey to live better, happier lives. Today, we’d like to share some information about how therapy can help children regain a sense of normalcy after lockdown. Read on to learn more, then contact us to request an appointment.


How to Tell if Your Child Needs Support

Before we dive into ways therapy helps kids after Covid-19, you should know how to recognize whether your child is struggling. The following are common signs that our board-certified psychiatrists often notice:

  • Difficulty falling asleep

  • Changes in mood or appetite

  • Sudden loss of interest in hobbies


Cope With Social Anxiety

Because of social distancing mandates and stay-at-home orders, it’s no surprise that many children are feeling increasingly anxious about social situations. By meeting with a therapist from Innerspace Counseling, your child will learn to talk through their anxieties and find a way to overcome them.


Alleviate Back to School Stress

If your child is school-aged, you may notice they’re stressed about returning to in-person classrooms after having spent time attending virtually. Our clinicians provide individual and group therapy, among other activities, where kids can find support and talk through their stress.


Manage Anxious Feelings

After having their entire world turned upside down by Covid-19, many kids have some anxious feelings about everything. By participating in our anxiety treatment program, we’ll help your child learn new skills to overcome those feelings and thrive.
