Counselling for school aged children

It is normal for children to feel afraid or overwhelmed during these uncertain times and some stress and anxiety is to be expected.

However, if you know a child who is finding the enforced adjustments to their lifestyle difficult or have concerns about returning to school, the Family Life counselling team is here to support them.

We are a team of warm and highly experienced psychologists, counsellors and therapists. We use child-focused and trauma-informed therapeutic practices and always consider the issues and the individual in the context of their environment and family.
