Child Counselling


Do your child’s temper tantrums stress you out?

Is your child experiencing heightened anxiety or prolonged sadness?

Are their behaviour issues causing problems with other children?


At McDowall Counselling & Consulting Group we understand that each child is unique, and that no child’s problems come about in isolation. Our child-focused psychologists, psychotherapists and counsellors are dedicated to addressing the specific needs of each child while collaboratively guiding parents through a process of positive growth. Determining underlying issues for behavioural problems and teaching parents positive coping strategies for dealing with their children are only a few of the areas therapists address in counselling.

If you child is experiencing one or more of the following symptoms, we recommend you seek psychological support and request a consultation with one of our therapists.
