Welcome to Embley House
Counselling for children, adolescents and adults
Does your child experience emotional, social or behavioural difficulties?
Does your child have difficulties with separation anxiety or school refusal?
Do you need help with parenting?
At Embley House Counselling for Children (in Mindarie, near Joondalup) we believe therapy relies on supporting children in an environment saturated in safety, encouragement, empathy, respect and unconditional positive regard. If a child feels free to play, to explore and deal with their emotions, issues and sense of self, in a non-judgmental atmosphere, they will begin to gain self-regulation, self-esteem and create a positive identity from which they can build upon.
Whether it is anxiety, school refusal, anger issues, self-esteem issues or many other presenting concerns, Embley House Counselling for Children achieve results because children look forward to coming to their sessions. We understand that every child and every family is different and thus we deliver our therapy in a way that is tailored to the specific child and family.
After assessing the unique situation of both your child and your family, we develop an individual child and family therapy plan. This may comprise one or more of the following modalities of therapy:

All parents wonder if they are getting it right!! You're not alone.
Sometimes it's hard to tell what your child needs, what their behaviour means and if you're doing right by them.
Imagine what it might feel like if you could make sense of what your child is really asking from you.
