How does Lifeline Child Adolescent Family Counsellor help?

Our counselling rooms provide children with a warm and welcoming space, where they can be open and honest about their feelings and problems to our qualified counsellors.

We build on their strengths, encourage emotional resilience and provide coping strategies, encouraging them to overcome challenges in a healthy way.

While counselling is provided to young people, we collaborate with families or carers and need them to be engaged in the process to ensure their children feel fully supported.
