Adoption Issues

Finding you are adopted can sometimes be traumatic or life-altering, regardless of if you are a child, adolescent or adult when you find out. Occasionally, this can cause some psychological issues that require help to resolve.

Some of the issues that may arise due an adoption include:

  • Lack of trust
  • Feelings of abandonment by birth parents
  • Fear of future abandonment
  • Acting out
  • Guilt
  • Feelings of not being good enough

How we can help

There are several options that may help you or your child with adoption-raised issues. Often, the first place to start is meeting with a counsellor in order to determine the best therapies for his or her needs. Insight Psychological has a number of child-therapy and adult specialists on staff in our four locations – Spruce Grove, Red Deer, Calgary or Edmonton. Please call today to set up an appointment.
