Child Related Issues

Growing up can be hard and so can dealing with issues that you feel unequipped to deal with. Sometimes these feelings can see unmanageable and you don’t have anyone to talk to.

Child related issues can include:

  • Relationship issues within the family or friendship groups
  • Trouble controlling your emotions and therefore behaviours but you don’t understand why
  • Issues at school relating to academic progress
  • Loss of a relative or loved one
  • Being picked on or bullied
  • Struggling to ‘fit in’
  • Anxieties

Some schools may be able to organise counselling for you or there may be some sort of pastoral care with a teacher or adult who is able to listen and help. The important thing is not to bottle it up and ask for help when you need it.
