Family and Child Counselling

Nothing can be more heartbreaking for parents than seeing their children struggle with the challenges of growing up and adapting to things like new schools, separation, divorce or getting along with others. Stress can affect children in different ways and can cause behavioural problems and/or symptoms like anxiety, and depression. Counselling can help parents and children in gaining relief, feeling calmer, reducing stress and strengthening parent child relationships.

Counselling helps with issues such as parenting, blended family relationships, separation and divorce, parent/child conflict, teen problems among others. Many of our parents and families have found our Parenting Groups and Groups for Children and Youth helpful.
