Child and adolescent counseling


Today’s children and teens struggle with many common counseling issues, such as depression, eating disorders, broken relationships, suicide, and peer pressure, to name a few. Counseling children and adolescents is often different from counseling adults, though the objective is the same.

Teenage is the precious time which is to be cherished throughout life. Child and teenage counseling helps the young people who are not able to deal with their issues. Parents who feel that their children are displaying some abnormal behaviour, can seek help through counseling
