Teenage clients for bullying in schools and the internet have sadly increased, often the effect of which is self-harm or suicidal ideation. The youth we work with are offered safer ways to deal with their pain and are supported through the process.
Child Counselling assists children with their feelings and how they understand their world.
We may recommend that your child participates in one of our Children’s Courses
Through observation, dialogue and play we help children adjust and manage better.
Sometimes patterns that are interfering with healthy development are identified. If there are things we notice that might hint at an underlying issue we may recommend a referral.
Children use play as well as language to communicate their thoughts and feelings. Through this communication children learn new skills and strategies to better enable them to cope.

Child therapy aims to develop the child’s capacity for growth by establishing more useful ways of coping.
Children learn at a fast rate, if you think there is a need for therapy, now could be the best time.
