Counselling for Children and Adolescents

What Problems do Children Face Today?

Why do Families Need Counselling?

In an ever increasingly busy life, our children are faced with complicated lives beyond their years. The rate of change in technology often means parents, who have busy lives themselves, simply can not keep up with all the things a parent “should do”. The problems faced today are more complex than ever before.

Add to this the trend to move away from our extended families, and therefore our support system and the knowledge of generations, and parents have some serious challenges. We no longer depend on our wise ones.

Family counselling can often be a good sounding board for children and parents, simplify these challenges, and identify strategies to cope with the concerns of a family.

Building self esteem and a positive self image is a process in families that many take for granted and only when a problem occurs, support is sought. Parent education is a must.

Guidance on Preventing and Managing Bullying

Unfortunately, bullying is becoming more prevalent and many families seek strategies for both prevention and management of situations. Teaching children assertive, preventative behaviour is an effective form of prevention while following a defined process helps families cope with bullying situations.

Teenage Troubles

Teen years are for testing boundaries and experimenting with life. This has been so for generations. The job of parenting teenagers has become more difficult because the environment in which we parent has become complicated and more aggressive. This makes the rebellious years fraught with dangers, for which we have not prepared our teenagers.

How will our Youth Counselling Sessions Help you?

Many childhood and adolescent challenges can benefit from youth counselling, for the child, the parents or for both. Often a mediator can help families to solve their problems more effectively. Many teenagers just want someone who will listen, understand and not judge. This is a valid step in finding solutions.

 

Keystone Counselling offers caring, understanding child counselling sessions for children and teens, who can often solve their own dilemmas with guidance. Often teenagers just need someone who is not Mum or Dad.

 

Parenting workshops are run regularly at Keystone Counselling. Contact us for our timetable.

Skype/Phone Counselling

We offer counselling via Skype and phone where circumstances prevent attendance at our office.

These circumstances include:

  • Distance, we counsel anywhere in the world that has the hardware to enable this.

  • FIFO workers who wish to continue counselling when they are away from home

  • People with disabilities that prevent them from attending our office

  • People who are ill

  • Those who are unable to gain transport to our office

 

Skype counselling and phone counselling work very similarly to face to face sessions lasting an hour. They are also charged at the same rate.
