Counselling | Children and Adolescents

We help children and adolescents with social, cognitive, emotional, and behavioural difficulties. Treatment plans depend on the client’s age, understanding, and engagement in the counselling process.

Children and Adolescents

We help children and adolescents experiencing social, cognitive, emotional, and behavioural difficulties that are interfering with their daily lives and/or development.

The treatment plan developed will depend on the client’s age, understanding of, and engagement in the counselling process. As the client ages, our sessions aim to support their growing self-sufficiency and desire for independence which will be reflected in treatment strategies and goals. Depending on their age, we utilise a combination of expressive techniques, play and narrative therapy, and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). In addition, we provide expertise to parents regarding the best approaches to support and manage their child’s psychological and behavioural challenges. Through close collaboration and support from parents, we will help your child or adolescent on their unique journey to personal growth and success.

Below are some examples of possible difficulties your child or adolescent may be facing at home, school, and beyond:

  • Social: Attachment, communication skills, and shyness.
  • Cognitive: Attention, learning difficulties, and academic problems.
  • Emotional: Depression, anxiety, and anger.
  • Behavioural: Activity levels, impulsiveness, opposition/defiance, and sleep difficulties.

If your child or adolescent is currently in crisis and needs help, please call 911. Additional resources include:
