Alternative-Complimentary Mental Health Care For Childhood Issues
Welcome to the Child Behavioral Health Network or CBHN for short! We are a network of independently registered private practices offering alternative-complimentary therapies to help treat childhood related behavioral, social and physical challenges.
Our therapies are non-intrusive and compliment both children and adults' natural modes of self expression. Whether it is moving bodies, acting, making art, tapping, or playing to connect with a primary caregiver, the tools help to heal from the basic human need to communicate, create, find coherence and symbolise. And the tools can be found throughout our (pre) human history and across all cultures-from the corners of Africa, Asia to North America. Most of all, they help individuals find their voice, tell their story and find ways to cope in ways that words alone cannot do.
The research evidence for healing with alternative-complimentary therapies is vast, and keeps growing, and for many diseases and disorders-ranging from physical ailments, early attachment disorders, neurodivergent/'special needs' to trauma, including for cancer treatment & Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in which anxiety and depression often occur.
The Network's clinicians are culturally diverse, speaking more than one language next to English and able to work with children and adults from all cultural backgrounds. Therapy can be offered online, in person or in nature!
Be sure to explore our pages and reach out to us (or the individual clinician) if you have any questions.
