Paediatric Counselling and Family Therapy

Counselling is a talking therapy where the counsellor helps to explore areas that are causing concern or difficulties.

It involves a series of meetings and it is a time where you can explore your situation by expressing thoughts and feelings, not only by talking, but through games, play and creative activities too.
