We work with a supportive and non-judgmental approach

Counselling

Counselling or ‘talk therapy’ provides a safe space to discuss issues that are affecting a young person’s wellbeing. Counsellors work with children/adolescents and parents to explore areas that are causing concern or difficulties in a collaborative, supportive, and non-judgemental way.  Counselling sessions help children and adolescents to get a better understanding of themselves, learn healthy coping strategies, and develop intrinsic motivation to make changes. The counsellor’s approach is tailored to the individual and may include talking, playing, art and/or creative activities. Issues suitable for counselling include:

  • Alcohol/Drugs
  • Anger
  • Anxiety/Panic Attacks
  • Bereavement
  • Bullying
  • Confidence/Self-esteem/Identity
  • Family Problems
  • Illness
  • Learning differences
  • Mental Health
  • Physical Health
  • Relationships
  • Separation/Divorce
  • Stress
  • Transitions
