Children's Counselling

  Confidential counselling services for children using therapeutic play.

Who we are and how we engage with the world are much stronger predictors of how our children will do than what we know about parenting. In terms of teaching our children to dare greatly in the "never enough" culture, the question isn't so much "Are you parenting in the right way?" as it is:" Are you the adult that you want your child to grow up to be?" Brene Brown - Daring Greatly.
