    Child Counselling / Therapy
    by Gianluca
    How do I know my child needs counselling? Children use various methods to signal something is not right, and they differ a lot from adults. Acting out of character or showing signs of rebellion may be considered normal behaviour for a child. Still, such actions can also signal they are going through something they don’t want or don’t know how to talk about. This means it may be time to consider seeking a therapist to help you understand where this behaviour is coming from.

    Find Me a Therapist
    by Floss Knight
    For therapy to be successful, it is essential that you find a counsellor you can openly communicate with and makes you feel safe. This is why finding the right therapist is paramount. The right therapist should be professional, experienced in treating the type of issues you are facing, welcoming and ready to listen to you. When the counsellor makes you feel safe, it will be much easier for you to relax and open up about whatever issue you might be dealing with.

    Online counselling
    by Floss Knight
    One of the main reasons people in need of counselling postpone beginning therapy is because they can’t find the time to actually go to a counsellor’s office. Fortunately, technology is now helping us bring therapy closer to those in need. Online counselling can prove to be a valuable solution for those who can’t find the time or means to go to a brick-and-mortar counselling office.
