Childhood is such a wonderful, exciting and challenging time. As parents, there may be times when we see our children struggling and are not sure how to best support them. We want to do what is right by them and often feel at a loss to know what that is. That is were we come in!
At Hills Relationship Centre we support children with a range of challenges, including:
Managing big emotions
Separation anxiety and other anxieties or worries
Low mood and depression
Low self-esteem and lack of confidence
Difficulties with friendships
Navigating changes in a family, such as a new sibling or divorce
Challenges at school
What Makes Us Different?
Our greatest desire is to do what is right by your child and yourself.
We offer an evidence based scientific approach, but we never forget about your child's heart.
Play based therapy and sand play therapy are available.
We are a collaborative practice. This means that we work with your child, you as the parents/carer, their teachers, and other health professionals to provide a holistic approach to therapy.
Our team are all fully trained, registered and considered experts in this field.
Working with us
We recommend the following approach;
The first appointment is a parent/carer consultation. This is a session where your child/children are not present. We use this first session to understand what is concerning you about your child. We will talk about your family history, any parenting challenges you may be facing and what are your goals and hopes for your child.
The second appointment is for your child. Your child may want you to stay in the room for comfort, or depending on their age, they may want the appointment all to themselves. Either way is fine by us and we ask you to be understanding of what your child wants in that moment.
After meeting with you and then your child, we will then discuss with you what we believe is the best approach based on your specific situation. Sometimes our work is primarily with your child with you as a support person. At other times, our work may be helping you to parent your child based on their unique needs. Usually, our work is a mixture of both.
We offer children's counselling, play therapy and sand tray play at our child friendly office located in Bella Vista, New South Wales, Australia.
All our therapists are female, mother's to their own children and have a working with children's check and police clearance.
Each appointment runs for 60 minutes and costs $220.00 for parent consultations and $135.00 for children's sessions.
