Rising above your circumstances
In today’s world kids and teens are faced with many challenges that affect their general wellbeing. These include:
- Peer pressure
- Death in the family
These are just some of the things kids and teens are faced with in everyday lives. These challenges manifest as troubled behaviour such as:
To adults these challenges seem minor as we have already survived childhood. The challenges faced by adults seem so much worse.
It is important to remember that to children these challenges are being faced right now and they are very real with very real consequences.
Remember how tough those years were for you!
Negative behaviour is often a symptom of something in your child’s inner world that is hurting them in some way. Sometimes even the child is not aware of how something actually affects them.
Why Phoenix Counselling?
My aim is to help clients experience personal growth through various therapeutic techniques.
I assist you to find a way to cope with everyday life and challenges (traumatic experience or simply everyday life) that has led to hopelessness.
I am qualified to work with adults, children and teenagers.
I believe that it is possible to rise above our challenges.
About Phoenix Counselling
As a registered counsellor I aim to address symptoms by finding the underlying cause.
Once I address the causes (yes there can be multiple causes) I then work together with the kid or teen to find healthy ways to deal with these challenges.
This will result in better outcomes for themselves and possibly others around them. I work together with you and the teachers (where necessary) to help your kids and teens rise above their darkest hour.
Understanding the stigma surrounded by receiving help for mental health, I also offer online counselling.
- For kids aged 5-13 I use play therapy, therefore online counselling is not available for them as it requires person to person interaction.
- Teens aged 14+ are constantly using social media, why not use it to get the help they need without being judged for it. The option for "in person counselling" is available for older teens.
