What is Children's Counselling?

Navigating Childhood Challenges: The Essence of Children's Counselling

Children's counselling is a specialised avenue of therapy designed specifically to cater to the unique emotional and developmental needs of children and teenagers. Recognising that children often communicate and process their feelings differently than adults, this approach employs age-appropriate techniques. From play-based methods to creative storytelling or sandtray therapy. At its core, children's counselling provides a safe and nurturing environment for young ones to express themselves, confront challenges, and build resilience, setting the foundation for a balanced and flourishing future.
