Child counselling may be beneficial if your child is experiencing emotional distress, behavioral issues, academic struggles, difficulty adjusting to life changes, or other challenges that impact their well-being and functioning. It's essential to seek professional guidance if you have concerns about your child's mental health or behavior.

Signs that your child may benefit from counselling include changes in behavior, mood, or academic performance, persistent sadness or worry, withdrawal from friends and activities, sleep disturbances, appetite changes, unexplained physical complaints, aggression, self-harm, or thoughts of suicide.

Parental involvement can be an imperative aspect of child counselling. Depending on the child's age and the therapeutic approach, parents may participate in therapy sessions, receive feedback and guidance from the therapist, and learn strategies to support their child's emotional well-being at home.
During a child counselling session, the therapist will create a safe and welcoming environment for your child to express their thoughts and feelings. Depending on the child's age and needs, the therapist may use play therapy, talk therapy, art therapy, or other techniques to facilitate communication and exploration of emotions.
