Counselling and Therapy Services

Guidance and Support

Professional counsellors and therapists are trained to offer caring, expert assistance to help identify problems and assist you in finding the best ways to cope with them.

This may involve changing behaviours that contribute to the problem or by finding constructive ways to deal with a situation that is beyond your personal control.

For children with behavioural or psychological problems, as is often the case with children who have come into grandparent care  as a result of a traumatic family breakdown or abusive situation with their parents, the assistance of an expert therapist can make a significant difference to their lives.
