Children and young people

Many young people experience difficult periods and challenges related to mental health, and it is not always easy to open up to those closest to you, or to solve all problems yourself.

In such periods, many people can greatly benefit from talking to an outside professional, getting some new tools, perhaps some guidance, or just support to reflect freely and find new opportunities.

In collaboration with the psychologist, you find out what you want to focus on and get help for, and together you make a plan for the way forward. The goal is to support a good life and positive development

Therapy for children and young people are offered via video or at our clinic in Vika in Oslo. You do not need a referral from a doctor to book an appointment.

Who is this offer suitable for?

Conversations with a psychologist are suitable for children and young people who experience difficulties and challenges that they are unable to handle on their own or with the help of their loved ones. Through mapping and assessment of the kind of difficulties and challenges the individual experiences, the psychologist will assess what type of treatment and measures should be initiated. The psychologist can also assist by referring to public mental health care for children and young people if there is a need for this.

Difficult emotions
Regulation difficulties
Social difficulties
Demanding family situations
Difficult relationship with body or sexuality
Challenges with food
Self image
