Counselling for Kids
CatholicCare offers individual counselling and group programmes to children affected by many issues, including trauma, separation, grief and family violence. Children often don’t have the words to tell us what they are experiencing, instead they may show us how they are feeling by behaving in ways that we find challenging. Counselling and group-work programmes are available to support and encourage them to communicate their feelings and experiences. This is achieved through offering a range of age-appropriate expressive therapies that best support this process. Ongoing parental involvement in children’s counselling is encouraged and is in the best interests of your children.
CatholicCare has trained children’s counsellors that can assist children in many ways.
- Talk about their experiences
- Make sense of their feelings
- Accept things that cannot be changed (such as death or separation)
- Learn skills to deal with conflict
- Develop self-esteem
