Children & Adolescent Counselling Services
There are few things more difficult for a parent than to watch their child struggle mentally or emotionally. Just like adults, children experience grief, loss, depression, and anxiety. Children can also be impacted by bullying, trauma, and academic struggles which can result in behavior changes and self-esteem issues.
At Cornerstone, we understand that children need help too. Although children often struggle to talk about highly emotional topics, play therapy can help. With the help of a trained therapist, children can express themselves and their problems through play – a medium which is safe and familiar to them.
Teens can present unique parenting challenges. They push the boundaries, fight for independence. and then seem clingy all in the same day. Although some of these behaviours may be a normal part of growing up, things can escalate to a level that is unhealthy for the child and the parent. We can help you and your teen develop boundaries, communicate effectively, and work through past issues. Call our office to talk to our intake worker about the counsellor who would be the best match for your teenager.
Cornerstone also provides educational and behavioral assessments for children and adolescents including cognitive/learning ability assessments and emotional/behavioral assessments.
