Counselling for Children and Teens
Our children and youth therapists are experienced and highly trained registered clinical counsellors, experts in working through family therapy, educational programs, personal parenting, training with play, art and family systems therapy.
Using talk therapy, play, art media, storytelling, and role play, children and youth are encouraged to explore individual, school, or family challenges that may be affecting their well-being. Some of the issues that can be addressed include: anxiety, depression, mood disorders, coping with bullying (as victim or perpetrator), separation/divorce, grief and loss, stress management, self-image challenges, maintaining healthy peer relationships, surviving academic pressures, coping with family transitions.
We estimate that out of the 100 young clients who have received counselling at the centre, an additional 500 individuals (family, friends, extended family, peers, teachers) were positively impacted in the community by the mental health support we provided to these young clients.
