Child Counselling

How do we begin?

If you have been referred by a doctor to one of our psychologists or if you are not sure which clinical psychologist would best suit your child's issue please contact us.

What your role is in your child's therapy?

We work collaboratively. We aim to support you to assist your child, by developing effective parenting strategies that are practical for your concern. The younger the child the more parental involvement in their child's therapy. For instance, children between 3 and 6 years are still developing their verbal or comprehension skills and learn best through play. We use play therapy as a strategy for teaching positive coping skills. Older children (7-12 years) benefit from both verbal and play-based therapeutic approaches. At home, you can provide ongoing support for your child by reinforcing and implementing the strategies developed.
