Supporting Children's Mental Health & Well-being Children navigating feelings of anxiety, depression, and/or self-harm deserve the specialized attention and expertise of a master-qualified counsellor. Here's why I am uniquely positioned to facilitate their healing journey: Expertise in Child Psychology: As a professional child counsellor with a master's degree, I am trained in child psychology, development, and therapeutic techniques. This equips me to comprehend children's unique emotional and behavioral complexities and the roots of anxiety, depression, Non-Suicidal Self-Harm (NSSI), and suicidal tendencies. A Safe Haven for Expression: Every child deserves a judgment-free zone to voice their fears and challenges. I prioritize building trust, ensuring every child feels genuinely heard, understood, and supported. Evidence-Based Interventions: My paid memberships with the Queensland Guidance Counselling Association (QGCA) for child counsellors, and the Australian Counselling Association (ACA), reinforce my commitment to evidence-based interventions specifically designed for children. This ensures effective mitigation of anxiety, depression, and self-harm. Ongoing Professional Growth: My annual professional development, coupled with vast experience as a teacher and guidance counsellor, ensures I remain at the forefront of mental health theories and practices. I lean on proven techniques like psychoeducation, CBT, play therapy, expressive arts therapy, and mindfulness to help children decipher their emotions and cultivate robust coping mechanisms. Ethical Counseling: I strictly adhere to the highest ethical standards when counselling children and adults, ensuring transparency, integrity, and respect in all interactions. Holistic Approach: Children's mental well-being isn't isolated from their surroundings. I delve into family dynamics, school environments, and social ties to paint a comprehensive picture. By collaborating with parents, teachers, and other key figures, I craft a unified strategy for healing. Immediate Safety Protocols: For children showing signs of self-harm or suicidal ideation, I swiftly implement risk assessments and safety plans. My expertise lies in discerning warning signs, rolling out apt interventions, and rallying the needed support to foster well-being. Your child's mental health is paramount. Let's work together to pave their path to healing and resilience.
