Individual Counselling

Helping young people grow through the challenges they face day to day is what we love to do.

But there are many concerning questions parents and guardians have:

  • “How do I help my child overcome separation anxiety?”
  • “What are some strategies for dealing with ADHD?”
  • “How do I know if my child has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?”

These are just a few of the many questions asked and we will do our best to help you find the answers.

We tailor sessions to your child’s individual¬†needs by recognising and building on their strengths as well as having a central focus on rapport.¬† This make the sessions fun and as a result the children want to come back to learn more.
