Child and adolescent trauma counselling

Free, confidential counselling service for children and young adults.

There are many different events that children and adolescents face during their life that can lead to an experience of trauma. Experiences such as domestic violence, sexual assault, bullying, separation, death, and so on can all cause lasting effects on a young person’s emotional growth and development.

Our expert, qualified trauma counsellors use a variety of creative and expressive therapies to address the symptoms of trauma. These include sand tray and symbol work, drawing therapy, play therapy, relaxation and mindfulness.

This confidential service is free and delivered throughout the Northern Rivers region. Counselling can be provided face-to-face in Lismore or Grafton, and online via video call.

All information exchanged is handled with the utmost care and confidence. Feel free to ask us about our information security practices.
