Pathway to Healing
Home & Family offers child therapy which enables children and youth to overcome difficulties and achieve emotional well-being.
What we offer:
Our therapists work with:
- Children from 3-years
- Youth up to 18 years
And provide couselling interventions for:
- Anxiety and depression
- Grief and loss
- Trauma (complex or relational)
- Family violence and other forms of abuse
- Relationship difficulties
- Parenting issues
We promote a collaborative approach to unpacking the complexity of experience. Our practitioners work alongside clients and families to create personalised plans, track progress and measure impact.
Child-Centered Play Therapy
We offer Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT) for children as young as three. CCPT is one of the most thoroughly researched methods of play therapy in the world. A child’s world of play is their natural form of communication and it is our belief that it is not what children do, but why they do it that is crucial to understanding them, relating effectively with them and, where required, intervening successfully with them.
