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.

These could 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.

If children are 14 years old or older, they can book themselves directly into counselling.

Who can we help?

Children aged 5 years and over are able to access our counselling services.

Is there a cost involved?

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.

Where can I access this service?

Children’s counselling is available in Darwin, Katherine and Alice Springs.
