Mindfulness-based therapies are effective because they alter emotional responding by modifying thoughts and feelings that affect negative self-beliefs. By regular practice of the techniques in these structured sessions, you can reduce emotional reactivity and enhance emotion regulation.

Counseling can help kids feel better about themselves, teach them skills to get along better with others, help them develop mature self-control, and improve ability to solve problems. Counseling can also help parents learn to understand their child’s feelings and behavior, deal more effectively with negative behavior without over-reacting, and help kids manage stress and frustration better.
