Towers Counselling



50 Crown Street
Wollongong, New South Wales, 2500

Children and most teenagers don't want to sit still and talk for an hour! Karen uses a range of resources and activities to engage with children and help them to express themselves.

Creative activities, such as fabric therapy, art and play therapy, books, cards, games and gardening are some examples. Children have the same emotions as adults and often don't have the words or the maturity to deal with them. There are also times when they know that mum or dad will be too sad or worried to listen to them, which in turn continues a pattern of silence.

All children and teenagers are welcome, including those with special needs and with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Maintaining eye contact, building social skills and the sensory experience of using fabric are all a part of this service. Children and teenagers under the NDIS scheme (National Disability Insurance Scheme) who are self-managed or plan-managed are able to see Karen for counselling sessions.

This can include Art Therapy or Walk and Talk Therapy as a part of the hourly session. Teenagers are able to make interesting items as a part of the counselling process and all resources are provided. Family Counselling is also available and can be adapted to fit the specific needs of your family.

Please call to discuss your needs and for the next available appointment - 0412 361 008.
