The counselling approach used will depend on a child’s age, situation and developmental stage. Whether talking, using creativity, arts or play, each and every therapy can be combined to find the right approach to meet your child’s needs to encourage them to express their feelings.
Counselling offers a safe environment for children to express their feelings whilst exploring and understanding what may have led them to feel or behave in a certain way.
It can help individuals cope with everyday worries, exam stress, grief and loss, self harm, relationships, anxiety and depression to name a few.
“It has really helped me coming to counselling because when I lost my mum I found it really hard to speak to people about it. Talking to someone helped improve my stress levels. Over the weeks of being with Siobhan I feel so good in myself, I now feel like me again and feel that a weight has been lifted off my shoulders” Year 8 pupil
