Counselling can seem like a bit of mysterious process at times- and perhaps sometimes more so when counselling children and young people.
When you enter the Child and Youth Counselling room, you may be intrigued by the paint pots and musical instruments and other colourful items on display.
“Is this a playroom or a counselling room?” a parent may wonder.
“Am I little too young for this?” a teenager thinking about having counselling may think.
But most of all the biggest question parents or carers , children and young people alike often wonder is:
“Will this actually help?”
We hope that this blog will be an engaging way to help shed light on how counselling children and young people works. We also hope that we can help bridge greater understanding of the kinds of difficulties that affect young people’s and children’s emotional and mental well being and explore what we can all do to support them.
