Counselling For Children

Equilibrium For Life  offers a flexible menu of effective therapeutic approaches tailored to meet the needs of your child or young person.

 

Counselling/therapy is available from age 8 and upwards in the Tayside area.

 

Various age and developmental stage appropriate tools/interventions such as drawing, painting, crafts, sandtray therapy, psycho-educational board games, guided imagery and Mindfulness are used to encourage your child/young person to comfortably express their difficulties and to talk about how they are feeling and discover ways of managing their difficulties. See photo gallery below for a few examples of the tools that can be used.

Many children/young people who have previously engaged in therapy with Equilibrium For Life have stated that they have felt happier, hopeful and more confident to deal with their problem(s) after just ONE session.

(See the "Guest Book and Testimonials" page to read what parents/carers, children and young people have said about their experience!)

 

Counselling/therapeutic input will help your child/young person to develop a positive attitude to life, recognise their strengths, build resilience and self confidence in an enjoyable and relaxed way either within their own home or in the Equilibrium For Life premises.

 

Your child/young person will learn how to use their skills and strengths to help themselves to better manage their unhelpful thoughts, feelings, unwanted behaviour and to successfully manage their difficulty.
