Teachers and school counsellors can often identify even subtle signs that children and young people are struggling emotionally.
Our services can be provided in addition to in-school counselling or as an alternative when young people and parents would like to deal with their issues in a different setting.
Programs targeted for children and young people include
Parent and young person mediation
Parent and young person mediation is a guided negotiation process, typically undertaken between parents and adolescents. The negotiation is guided by a professional Better Place Australia mediator.
A skilled and experienced mediator can act like a translator between teens and parents and find ways for family members to communicate well, understand each other and build better relationships. Family Counselling with Children and Adolescents brings together families to improve communications, address everyone’s concerns and strengthen family relationships.
Personal development programs for young people
Better Place Australia also offers a range of mental health and well-being programs for young people, adolescents and children that can be tailored to suit a school or community setting.
