Children & Young People

Some children’s behaviour can be upsetting and a concern for parents. By providing counselling for children and young people, I can help to provide a safe supportive space for your child to explore the things they are finding a struggle. And work with them to find their voice and express themselves. Counselling can be a empowering way to provide a child the space to grow in confidence and self esteem, leading to better relationships  and emotional wellbeing, leading to success in life.

Children are encouraged to explore choices and decisions that could lead to effective functioning and improved outcomes. With the help of counselling, children and young people can be supported in challenging personal issues and crises that could interrupt their learning, self-esteem and social development.

Counselling for Children – Questions parents ask

WHAT IF MY CHILD SAYS PRIVATE THINGS ABOUT MY FAMILY?
CAN I ASK MY CHILD QUESTIONS ABOUT THE COUNSELLING SESSIONS?
AS A PARENT/CARER CAN I ASK YOU HOW THE SESSIONS ARE GOING?
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL MY CHILD NEED?

What next?

Depending on your child’s age, I will work with you and your child to see if there is cause to extend our work together or refer on to another counsellor or support service.

I have close links with many children and young people’s services and youth organisations and can offer a suggestions for you to consider.
