Child, Youth, Adult and Family Behaviour Therapy
and Counselling Service

If you or your children (no matter their age or ability- even if they are adults) are having some behavioural struggles and you are just not quite sure what to try next, then Behaviour Therapy may be able to help you.

An experienced therapist will initially meet  with you to discuss you and your child or young persons’s needs. This discussion will include an extensive assessment of your family's situation and usually takes about 1 1/2 hours to complete.

This process will help to determine whether or not behaviour therapy is appropriate for your family and situation.

Behaviour therapy is a solution focused choice

It is not about deep psychological therapy or intense counselling but practical strategies and referral as required.

Counselling is used  to support parents, children and young people understand their behaviour and to make sense of why they behave the way they do. It may be necessary to cover many issues with the child including grief and loss, trauma, divorce or separation, problems at school and learning  difficulties.

Behaviour therapy will then be utilised to help your child develop new skills to more effectively and consistently manage their own behaviour without as much adult or external help.

Parents and carers will be supported with parenting strategies that may help the implementation of skills development and integration.

Counselling is also offered to adults of all abilites. Often adults with additional needs find it helpful to have someeone outside of their situation to process their thoughts and feelings with.
