Counselling does not provide children and young people with all the answers or solutions to their problems.
However, it does offer an opportunity to explore feelings, thoughts and experiences.
It also provides a space for children and young people to understand and discuss issues that may be on their minds. Issues such as anxiety, self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, bullying, family and relationship issues,
Counselling allows the young person to express themselves and enables them to make informed choices, which helps them to develop a more positive attitude which builds confidence and self esteem.
Older children and young people may find talking works for them, however younger children may feel more comfortable using creative tools such as sand tray work, playing games, drawing and other creative activities.
