While it is true that stress is a normal human experience, today’s school, work and social demands can make it seem unbearable. Add a traumatic experience or difficult change and stress can become a devastating roadblock for a child, teen or adult. Employing science-based modalities like neurofeedback and EMDR, along with receiving counseling from a skilled therapist, makes it possible to improve coping skills, eliminate panic attacks and control physical symptoms that come from anxiety and stress.

While attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is often associated with children, it can often persist into adulthood. Untreated, it can lead to difficulty in school or work, low self-esteem and difficulty in relationships. If you, your child or teen seem to be experiencing trouble focusing or impulse control, counseling and neurofeedback can offer considerable improvement.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after a painful event can lead to ongoing emotional and physical distress. If left untreated, severe anxiety and depression can develop. The good news is modern psychotherapy treatments available at Noonday can give children, teens and adults a road to recovery.
NFL quarterback Brian Sipe famously said, “The only way to maximize potential for performance is to be calm in the mind.” Noonday’s Trexo Training has proven to help athletes improve focus, and allow their body to perform at the highest level.
Even in the most sound family units, difficult problems can arrive. Whether caused by financial difficulties, grief, substance abuse or other stressors, conflict can lead to challenging family dynamics. Working with a therapist can help children, teens and parents cope with the stressors and identify healthy conflict resolution options.
Adjusting to Life Changes
While change is a natural part of life, it can be hard to accept, especially for children and adolescents. Starting a new school, accepting a blended family, and going through parental divorce are life changes that can cause great stress. Learning to adjust can lead to personal growth and a newfound sense of confidence.
Healing from Abuse
Unfortunately, abuse takes many different forms: child abuse, dating abuse, spiritual abuse, domestic abuse, sexual abuse and stranger abuse. Regardless of the perpetrator or the age at which it was experienced, the trauma is extraordinarily painful. Proper therapy is essential for avoiding long-term effects like anxiety, eating disorders, poor boundaries and depression.
Grief & Loss
Grief therapy gives a child or adult a safe place to cope with the loss following a major life event. A trained therapist can help work through the complicated stages of grief and reduce the symptoms of prolonged depression.
The importance of focus is evident in many aspects of life including school, work and athletics. However, it was not until the introduction of recent cutting-edge psychological advancements that improving focus has been made accessible to a wide audience. Brain mapping, neurofeedback and other modalities utilized by Noonday therapists and registered nurses have provided advanced focus treatments to athletes, scholars and corporate professionals in Northeast Alabama.
A child, teen or adult experiencing low self-esteem, self-doubt and self-criticism will often avoid situations where they fear they will underperform. As a result, they miss out on rewarding opportunities and the abundance of life God wants for them. Cognitive behavioral therapy encourages the patient to reconstruct distorted thinking and assert themselves in activities and relationships.
Through anger management therapy, a child, teen or adult identifies the root of their anger and practices steps to help them stay calm. Reducing the emotional and physical arousal caused by anger allows a person to adjust their perspective and be a healthier friend, family member and co-worker.
