Child & Youth Counselling

At Achieve Psychological we work with children and youth ages 5 and up. Younger children typically spend more of their time in play and art-based activities, while older children, teens and adults spend more time talking directly about the challenges they are facing. Children may also engage in direct skill building and practice to help facilitate their positive coping skills (e.g., mindfulness and relaxation), social and conflict resolution skills, or to decrease their fears and anxiety.

Happy Little Girl

Life can have challenges for people of all ages – including kids. Children see the world from another perspective and face many challenges for the first time. In the process of growing up, children often have trouble coping at some time (at home, at school, with divorce and separation, with other children, etc.), or they exhibit behaviours which concern or alarm their parents or teachers

.
Our counsellors provide a non-judgemental way to think through and address life’s tough questions.
