Life is easier when you have fun at school.

School Refusal

School refusal is on the rise. Increasing numbers of children and teens are refusing to go to school.   It is very challenging for families to manage and is often the sign of a deeper issue with anxiety or learning challenges. Our counsellors will help your child better understand the origin of this anxiety and build strategies to help them face this fear and move past the obstacle of attending school.  Building confidence and resilience is the underpinning of this therapy.
