At Butterfly Counselling Services, we have many years of experience providing counselling for children / young people, parents, and families.
Each child / young person and family are unique and because of this we integrate various therapeutic models including person-centred therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), EMDR, play therapy, dyadic developmental psychotherapy & parenting (DDP), transactional analysis, gestalt therapy, mindfulness.
Counselling therapy can help a child or young person to explore their feelings and thoughts and develop strategies to help manage them. Counselling therapy gives children and young people the opportunity to develop healthy thinking and behavioural patterns.
A treatment plan is carefully structured around the needs of each child or young person and their family. As each family is unique, we tailor the counselling accordingly. This may involve working one-to-one with the child or young person or with parents or with the parent(s) and child.
Counselling provides an understanding as to why the child or young person feels and reacts in certain ways. Children and young people will benefit from new approaches to help them navigate feelings and situations they perceive as negative.
Therapy can also provide psychoeducation around emotions, self-regulation, thought process, relaxation techniques, mindfulness and more.
Additionally, counselling can help children and young people explore their relational behaviours and improve social communication with others. Strategies to cope with social situations and different social settings can be explored and used.
Butterfly Counselling Services offers a safe, non-judgmental, and respectful environment where children, young people and families are encouraged to talk openly about their concerns and feelings. We provide an essential confidential relationship based on trust and respect.
“I contacted Fiona after receiving her details as a recommendation to ask for support for my 13 year old son who was suffering massively with anxiety. This was impacting his day to day life and he needed support. Fiona spent time building trust and confidence with him whilst helping him deal with his anxieties. She spent time with us as parents helping us understand and advising us how to manage his anxious days. With her support he has overcome his anxieties and has tools to manage for the future. To be honest the change for him has been transformational.”- Parent
