It was really helpful to be able to talk our matters through with someone in our own language, that made all the difference to us.

We thought our child had setttled in alright at school, but at some point the teacher informed us that school results  were declining. We’d noticed our child had become quieter and not so easy to talk with, increasingly spending more time on the computer. He had also started to complain about stomach pains that prevented him from going to school regularly. A school counsellor suggested us to contact PsyQYoung. We started sessions with a therapist and these helped our child dealing with anxieties. As parents we learned to communicate more effectively with each other in the family. The therapist also collaborated with the school and collectively we managed to improve things for our child. As a parent I felt supported in dealing with feelings of guilt about our decision to move to another country.  Thinking ‘What have we done?’ changed into ‘We can deal with this’.
