Sometimes children and and their families may need extra support if they are finding it difficult to deal with or understand their emotions and/or behaviour.Counselling children is very different to counselling adults. What we do and how we do it depends on a child's age, their development, whether they have any specific difficulties. Many people may think that counselling is about talking to our clients about their problem. Actually it is more about listening but children are unlikely to talk for 50 minutes about their problems. We therefore have to use many methods for children to be able to tell us about their difficulty and find many ways to explain to them what might make things better for them.
