Being worried about your child is a natural part of being a parent and recent surveys have found that worrying about your child’s emotional health is the top of those worries.
When the issues affecting a child are emotional, rather than physical, it can make you feel powerless to help. We would all hope that our children open up and talk to us about what is affecting them but this isn’t always the case. Sometimes it is easier to open up to someone other than family or friends.
If you are worried about your child’s behaviour or emotional health then maybe counselling could help. Often counsellors are available in schools so it is worth talking to your child’s school pastoral team to see what support is available or you can make a referral for your child to meet with one of our TeenTalk Counsellors.
Our service is free-to-access, but it is entirely funded by grants and donations so if you would like to help keep this valuable service for children and young people in North and West Wiltshire going please do consider making a donation.
The pages in this section will give you more understanding of what counselling is and how it might help. There is also a page with links to other sources of support.
