Child development counselling

Learn to handle stress, conquer confusing and upsetting feelings such as anger and sadness gracefully, and lead a fulfilling life.

Child counsellors are mental health specialists, who offer invaluable insight into your child’s social and emotional development and mental health….Child psychologists are trained to help children make sense of what is going on in their minds, bodies, and lives – in a way that they can understand. Child counselling addresses issues that are negatively impacting a child’s growth, development, mental health, and well-being.

What is Child Counselling?

Child counselling is a type of therapy that focuses on young children, teens, and adolescents with one or more mental illnesses. It also provides aid to youths, who have experienced trauma, and/or who are experiencing a dysfunctional or stressful home environment.

Many of the issues these children face mimic the issues adults face in their day-to-day lives. Some of these common issues include anxiety, depression, and grief. The goal of child counselling, however, is to break down problems into manageable parts, so children can better understand and cope with them.

What are the Functions of Child Counsellors?

Child counsellors perform many services to vulnerable youth. Most importantly, these mental health professionals have the know-with-all to help your child receive the help he/she needs to resolve his/her issues and resume a healthy and productive life. It is important to understand that children, who are suffering from mental health issues or psychological distress, may not share these concerns with their parents. That doesn’t happen because your child doesn’t love you; rather, it occurs because he/she fears disappointing you.
