Children and Family Counselling
Our professionally trained counsellors can work with children, teenagers and their families for a range of different concerns in their life.
Following the easing of restrictions by the NT Government, we are resuming face-to-face sessions. Read our COVID-19 update.
Support for children and families include:
- problems at school, such as bullying
- friendship and social issues
- behaviour and emotional difficulties such as anger, sadness, stress, worry or fear
- traumatic events like illness, hospitalisation, grief and loss
- dealing with separation
- family changes.
When parents and carers are referring their child to counselling, they will first need to speak with a counsellor. The counsellor will discuss the parents/carers concerns and determine if counselling is suitable.
In certain circumstances, young people 14 years old or older, may be able to book themselves directly into counselling.
Children aged 5 years and over are able to access our counselling services.
Fees are affordable and vary according to the parent’s or carer’s income. When you make an appointment, our intake officers will discuss fees with you.
Face-to-face sessions are available in Darwin, Katherine and Alice Springs.
Phone or video sessions are available for people all over the Territory.
