Children & Young People Counselling in Perth

Child & Family Therapy Counselling provides psychosocial assessments and counselling to address behavioural, social, emotional and/or learning problems experienced by children, young people and their families.

Counselling Children and Young People is tailored to the specific age, development and situation of the child, adolescent and family. Angela has extensive experience working with complex emotional, behavioural and social difficulties. Developmentally appropriate and culturally sensitive therapeutic approaches are used. The aim is to promote wellbeing from early childhood through to adolescence, along-side family health and wellbeing.

There are times when Children and Young People experience Psychosocial Behavioural and Emotional difficulties ranging on a continuum of severity. The earlier the concern is addressed, the better is the outcome.
