As a Youth Gold Coast Counsellor, I specialize in providing mental health services for children and adolescents. I play a crucial role in assessing, and treating various emotional, behavioral, and psychological issues that young individuals may face. Here are some of the key services I offer
Youth Counsellor Gold Coast
I provide one-on-one counseling to children and teenagers to help them cope with emotional challenges, improve self-esteem, manage stress, develop coping skills, and address specific psychological concerns.
Family dynamics can significantly impact a young person’s mental health. I often involve the family in therapy to address family conflicts, improve communication, and create a supportive environment for the child or adolescent.
Youth psychologists are trained to respond to crises, such as suicidal thoughts, self-harm, or severe behavioral disturbances, to provide immediate support and ensure the safety of the child or adolescent.
Collaboration with teachers, school counselors, and other educational professionals is crucial to support the overall well-being of the youth. I may consult with schools to address academic or behavioral issues that impact a student’s learning experience.
Parenting Support and Education
I often work with parents to provide guidance on how to support their child’s emotional and behavioral development effectively. They may offer parenting workshops, educational sessions, and resources.
Social Skills Training
For children and adolescents experiencing difficulties with social interactions, I may offer social skills training to improve communication, empathy, and relationship-building skills.
Attention and Behavior Management
I can work with children and teenagers with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or behavioral issues to develop strategies for improving focus, self-control, and impulse management.
