counselling & emotional support
When a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening condition, a family’s world is turned upside down. For many families it is the beginning of a roller-coaster ride that is unpredictable and full of challenges.
The Family Support Team at Very Special Kids provides counselling to individuals, couples or families. This counselling may occur formally or as informal emotional support in response to families changing needs. Counselling is an opportunity for a parent, sibling or child to express feelings, thoughts, hopes and fears in a safe, non-judgmental space, identifying their strengths and strategies that will assist them in dealing with the many adjustments in their life.
