Psychological resilience describes the ability to "bounce back" and become stronger following times of stress and adversity. Resilience is a personal quality that can be developed. Research suggests that thinking styles rather than the nature of the life events have a greater influence on resilience. Psychologists use evidence based techniques to assist in changing unhelpful thinking.
Why help young people develop resilience?
Children and young people continue to develop into early adulthood. Due to the incredible growth, learning and development that happens during childhood and adolescence it is an ideal time to intervene and assist them to develop skills. These skills and strengths fostered can have a lifelong impact on an individual's coping ability.
Life is full of challenges for each of us. Resilience Psychology was established with one goal in mind; to assist children and young people not only to overcome but to thrive and equip them with skills to protect them in the face of future stressors. If you are concerned about your child's behaviours, emotional health, relationships and general wellbeing feel free to call and discuss an appointment.
