Therapy for Children

Children and Young People Counselling

Sometimes children and young people may need extra support if they are finding it difficult to deal with, or understand their emotions and/or behaviour. Much help is provided within the education system, however some children and young people, or their families, may decide to seek further help in the form of counselling from an independent service.

Counselling for children and young people differs from counselling for adults because it is provided by specially trained therapists in the specific needs of this group. Different methods may be used to encourage children to be able to express their difficulties, such as drama, play and art. This will be tailored individually to the child’s needs.

Although different methods may be used for counselling children, the aim of counselling for both children and adults is the same; to help them cope better with the emotions and feelings that are upsetting them.

Counselling children and young people can benefit them by helping the child to develop their strengths and build a positive self-esteem and attitude to life.

Issues that children may come with include:

  • Family and step-family relationships
  • Behavioural issues
  • Bereavement
  • Emotional turmoil
  • Eating problems
  • Bullying
  • Educational problems
