Child Sessions: It is never too early for emotional support and sometimes it’s better (in part) coming from outside the family. Counselling for children can be incredibly beneficial if they are having difficulties at school, relating to other children, are sad, angry or in need of some extra support. It can help them process some of the seemingly, unmanageable feelings that surface with the changes and challenges that life inevitably presents. If you are questioning whether your child is ok and you think your child might need a bit of extra support do call, as issues addressed early on are much more easily overcome than issues that are allowed to continue, as they can become increasingly more complicated.Top of Form
Teen Sessions: Bottom of Form Being a teenager is challenging and confusing. We are figuring out a great deal of external and internal change all at once. It can also be a very isolating time, even if we have good friends and a supportive family, we can feel very alone in our experience. With very high rates of teenage suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, self-harm and eating disorders, it is vital teenagers get the support they need as soon as possible. It is a hugely valuable resource to be able to talk through your fears, challenges, experiences, feelings and dreams with someone who isn’t a friend or parent, someone who is not there to judge or tell you what you should do but is there to listen and support a healthy sense of self development.
Counselling therapy for teens and children is not a “fix it,” but a way of coming into increasing self-awareness, wellbeing and empowerment. Competent therapy develops our resilience, self-knowledge and self-acceptance, improves our relationships and our capacity to love.
