Our professionally trained counsellors can work with children or teenagers for a range of different issues, such as:
- 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
- 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.
If children are 14 years old or older, they can 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.
Children’s counselling is available in Darwin, Katherine and Alice Springs.
