“Does your child or teenager need help with any emotional, behavioural or social challenges?”
Counselling helps your child to understand, manage and overcome many different personal challenges, such as:
- Friendship problems
- Asperger’s related issues
Counselling will empower your child to work towards achieving valuable personal and educational goals.
“When is child counselling useful?”
Whenever a situation bothers your child enough that it interferes with their ability to:
- Concentrate in class or at work
- Do their schoolwork
- Communicate with parents
- Interact with friends
- Or enjoy life.
“Is counselling confidential?”
All counselling is confidential. Information is only revealed to others with client consent, except where there is a serious risk to the client or to others.
You are invited back into each session for the final 5-10 minutes for a review of the progress made and to discuss any new goals or homework.
“How many sessions are required?”
We recommend an initial program of six (6) weekly sessions. Some less frequent follow-up sessions can be helpful to review progress, reinforce new skills and set new goals. Parents often see some quick improvements within the first few sessions however research has shown that it typically takes 2-3 months of practice to effectively form new habits.
“What’s the first step?”
The first step is to meet with one of our experienced child psychologists to discuss your child’s needs.
We will recommend the right approach for your child, explain the counselling process and take a detailed background history.
So you get to meet your child’s psychologist and ensure you are comfortable with the entire process before you go ahead.
The initial session is usually for parents only (and sometimes also for older teenagers). This is so we can discuss all the issues openly.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions and make an informed decision about our services.
