You or your child may want to try counselling if they are experiencing difficulties at school, home or with friends. If you or they are having a tough time in life with things like being bullied, keeping up with schoolwork, anxious about making friends, feeling others don’t understand them or have time for them; or they may have more general underlying feelings of anxiety or dissatisfaction with life. In counselling people will be able to talk to an independent professional person about these things and get help and advice to make things better.
