Counselling

At Creative Therapy For Kids we integrate narrative therapy,  play therapy and other creative therapy methods to ensure that our service delivery is adapted to the developmental level of children and needs of young people. The  safe and supportive environment  we provide can help your child share their story, explore their feelings and behaviours, problem-solve and build self-esteem. Within this setting, children can work through difficult emotions, grow, and learn about themselves and their relationships with others. Our counselling service can help with issues such as:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Behavioural issues
  • Low self-esteem
  • Grief and Loss
  • Family separation
  • Trauma
  • being in Out of Home Care
  •  and more ...

Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss the suitability of our service to your individual circumstances.
