Child & teenagers counselling​

We help you deal with your children's issues

Children deal with a lot as they grow up and there is so much change going on around them.

Sometimes it is hard to talk through these issues with your child especially if you are unsure on how to approach it or concerned of the impact.

Sometimes its hard to know what to say but it often makes it worse if we choose not to talk at all.

Safe Place Therapy is here to help your child express their thoughts and feelings and cope better with the change or issues they are facing. We can also support you in how to set up conversations and talk through difficult topics.

Here are some of the issues we regularly come across​:
