Understanding children’s behaviour is accomplished by viewing parents and children as a team. When a child is not functioning well, there is often some imbalance in the team’s functioning. The emotional atmosphere that exists between parents and children can lead either to constructive, healthy living or a life filled with ongoing challenges and frustrations.
Counselling offers children and young people the opportunity to identify, discuss and understand problems and to develop necessary coping skills. Counselling also provides the opportunity to address parental concerns, educate parents regarding their child’s unique needs, and assist them in meeting these needs in an appropriate, effective fashion.
