Being worried about your child is a natural part of being a parent and recent surveys have found that worrying about your child’s emotional health is the top of those worries. When the issues affecting a child are emotional, rather than physical, it can make you feel powerless to help. We would all hope that our children open up and talk to us about what is affecting them but this isn’t always the case. Sometimes it is easier to open up to someone other than family or friends.
If you are worried about your child’s behaviour or emotional health then maybe counselling could help. CASY counsellors are available in some schools throughout Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire so it is worth talking to your child’s school pastoral team to see what support is available.
The pages in this section will give you more understanding of what counselling is and how it might help. There is also a page with links to other sources of support.
