Learn how to help individuals to find their own answers

Counsellors help individuals to find their own answers and make their own choices. They help clients to reduce confusion and gain a different perspective to cope with life’s challenges and make positive changes where necessary.

About Counselling Children & Adolescents

Counselling children and adolescents is often different from counselling adults, though the objective is the same. Methods used in counselling children and adolescents often depend on the clients’ age, development stage and individual challenges. Your role as the counsellor is to help the client, no matter the age, to make their own decisions rather than making decisions for them.
