Child & Family Counselling
It is worrisome and heartbreaking as a parent to know your child or teen is struggling and to watch it affect their daily life. It is common as a parent to have a gut feeling that something is wrong but not know for certain what the problem might be. At night, you wonder if your child is having a hard time adapting to a separation, divorce, friends or school. You think about their symptoms—such as anger, anxiety, depression, defiance, or impulsivity.
You know that family communication needs to improve, but you think counselling means being forced to have difficult conversations that might make things worse. You want to help your family, but you are concerned that taking your child or teen to counselling means you are failing as a parent. Coming to Family TLC means bringing your family to a counselling professional who knows how to build a safe, therapeutic alliance, allowing your child to open up to the problems and discover their solutions. We have seen counselling strengthen relationships and improve family communication.
Tim and Sarah’s 7 year old daughter Abby recently started the brand new school year. Since Tim and Sarah separated 6 months ago, they noticed Abby struggled with the change. She had been very emotional and would have angry outbursts. She was not able to sleep, and she was having difficulty integrating with her peers at school.
Fortunately, when Sarah was discussing these issues with Abby’s teacher, she recommended counselling. Sarah and Tim both decided the best thing for Abby was to get professional help. Abby was able to develop a connection with her therapist. She loved having someone to talk to. Tim and Sarah received valuable parenting strategies, and ultimately loved the changes they saw in Abby!
