Group Counselling for Children
I Got This! Counselling support group for children in transition of a separation or divorce.
Is your child showing signs or experiencing symptoms of grief, anxiety or depression during the period of transition of your separation or divorce? It is common for children to experience behavior changes and to have difficulty processing their thoughts and feelings during this time. It becomes problematic when it interferes with their ability to function normally in their daily life (Eg: relationships, school, family, recreation, personality etc).
Get some support: Parents do the best they can to help their children but sometimes need help. Give your child the support they need and sign them up for our 7-week support group. You can feel better knowing you don't have to do it all. You can feel safe and supported yourself knowing the facilitators Tara and Cathy are experienced and caring counsellors who have your family's best interests in mind.
Your child will be given the tools to:
better understand their thoughts, feelings and behaviours
support their peers in the group process
become more mindful during times of distress
cope better in all areas of their life
accept the present and themselves
become more confident
identify their strengths
grieve their losses
improve social skills
process negative experiences related to the separation/divorce
