CHILD COUNSELLING

We all struggle with 'big' feelings at the best of times. Children are especially vulnerable because of their inability to use language to express or process them. They face situations such as domestic violence, parental separation, a new sibling, death of a loved one, bullying or moving home. There is anger, sadness, fear and jealousy which often reflects in challenging behaviour, a way for them to feel in control. In therapy, I see it vital to allow expression of these feelings through mediums they feel most interested in and comfortable using, such as, drawing, sculpting, sand tray, role play, puppets etc. In doing so, they find meaning to their experiences and they no longer need to engage in certain behaviours to feel heard and understood. Although individual sessions with the child are confidential, I often work  together with the family, so that the child feels just as supported and validated at home.
