Parents & Families

We Can Help.

Like their parents, children experience the full range of human emotions, happiness, sadness, joy, grief, anxiety, depression and more. Like their parents, children are affected by what is happening in their environment: parent’s fighting, separation and/or divorce, loss of a family member, bullying, addictions, school stress, coming out, relationship abuse, dating violence and more.

Unlike their parents, and other adults, children will often use behaviours instead of words to express what they are feeling or experiencing inside of them. Depending upon the age of the child, these behaviours can range from bedwetting, tantrums, nightmares, hyperactivity, peer conflicts, withdrawal and a host of other behavioural issues.

A Place to Be Heard

No matter their age, children want to be heard.

Calgary Counselling Centre’s family counsellors are adept at working with children to provide them a safe space where they can speak-up and express their feelings. Our family counsellors know how to get to the root of issues, and how to provide children, and their care-givers, the tools to keep the doors of communication open.

No matter their age, at Calgary Counselling Centre, we provide counselling to both children and youth to help relieve their distress and to improve their social and relationship well-being.

Using age appropriate therapies such as art, play, sandbox, and talk therapy our counsellors seek to provide the child/youth with a safe and reassuring environment to explore what is causing them distress, and to create well-being.
