Does your child have difficulty sleeping? Do you find your child becoming anxious or stressed out? Are you noticing yourself becoming overwhelmed? Well turns out, these are all connected! Research has shown that higher levels of anxiety in children can predict more sleeping problems. Parents of these children also tend to feel stressed or even depressed themselves.
Here at Interact, many of our clinicians are trained in the evidence-based practice of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which can help both anxiety and sleep difficulties for children and adults! Some things we teach our clients include breathing exercises, preparing a sleep schedule or routine, exploring thinking patterns, learning to overcome fears/anxieties, and so many other new healthy coping skills! Call us today (215-487-1330) to schedule an intake for yourself or your child and learn more about how we can help you!
