Counselling for Children
Counselling children requires a playful, gentle approach that allows children to express their rich inner worlds that often cannot be expressed through words alone. Concerns that prompt parents to seek counselling for their children include anxiety, including separation anxiety and school refusal, as well as symptoms of depression such as low mood, difficulty focusing and increased irritability. Children can also experience low self-worth, struggle with peers, and bully or are the targets of bullying.
Children may be effected by the relationships between the adults in their lives through separation, divorce, or ongoing parenting disputes which can manifest itself in a wide variety of ways, including acting out or oppositional behaviour.
Counselling can give you and your child the tools to move through these challenges and get back on track. I use a variety of creative and expressive approaches in my work with children as well as Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and Attachment Based Therapy.
