Child Counselling Adelaide
Raising children can be challenging as childhood and growing up is a complex journey. Childhood is a period of intense growth where children learn, develop, and go through tremendous physical, emotional, and psychological changes.
It may be an exciting and smooth experience for some children, but not for all children. Though all children experience grief, anxiety, and other challenges, some children face overwhelming challenges which are hard for the parents to identify or solve.
Children need love and support to learn and grow into happy and well-adjusted adults. Most importantly, they need love, care and support from parents or caregivers at a consistent pace. In today’s busy world, although parents and caregivers provide a supportive and nurturing environment at home, some children need professional help.
Children need help when they struggle with issues they can’t understand or cope with alone. Child counselling can help your child overcome their distressing emotions by developing coping skills. At Adelaide Counselling Practice, we provide child counselling for children between 6 to 12 years of age.

- Behavioural issues

How do you know if your child needs extra help?
Children with emotional stress or difficulties will often act it out by being irritable, angry, lethargic, clingy, or ill-mannered at home. Some children may completely withdraw themselves from you and refuse to talk to you. They may also perform poorly at school. Some parents will have tried everything to connect with their child, to make their child listen, or have simply seen enough tantrums. Some may feel completely helpless. It can be at this stage that reaching out to a child counsellor may be the answer. Adelaide Counselling Practice offers effective counselling services for children suffering from emotional, cognitive, and behavioural issues.

Child counselling is not a treatment, but it is a therapy that involves identifying and healing the root cause of the problem affecting the child.

Our child counsellors use a combination of child-centred approaches & therapies such as Storytelling, Talk Therapy, Play Therapy, Art Therapy and Symbol Work to help children express their emotions in a safe and comfortable way.
