Counselling for Children and Adolescents
It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken adults.
Counselling can help children and young people who are struggling with a variety of issues. Often we are not sure what is bothering our children or even that anything is wrong until their behaviour changes in some way. Providing a safe confidential space can help them to work through difficult feelings and develop confidence and resilience. Few of us are able to function well when we are unhappy or stressed, young people receiving emotional support from a qualified professional can help them to reflect on their feelings and make issues easier to manage. I use talking, play and art therapy in my sessions. This means that sometimes I might talk through issues with my clients, sometimes we might use art or play depending on what feels right for the client.
Play is the language that children use before words and in using play and art therapeutically I hope to help children to engage with their feelings to make them more manageable.
CAL Counselling is based in Hampton Hill with direct public transport links from Fulwell, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Twickenham, Kingston-Upon-Thames, Sunbury-On-Thames, Teddington and surrounding areas.
