Counselling for Children

Counselling for Children

Anxiety is overwhelming  and can impact all areas of children’s lives.  There are a lot of stresses for children in our busy modern electronic community.  Using child friendly approaches in brief therapy can address these problems quickly and help you and your child move forward in a calm and peaceful manner.

Elly uses a combination of creative activities, cognitive behaviour therapy and art activities to help children better identify their emotions, manage their anxiety and decrease their anger and outbursts.

Mom’s House, Dad’s House
