Small Group Counseling
I offer small group counseling sessions throughout the year for students in grades kindergarten through fourth grade. The small group experience is an enjoyable way for students to benefit from personal growth as well as to gain support from peers with similar needs. Groups are typically arranged through parent and teacher referrals. The small groups usually meet for a six week session. Groups are created as needed according to varying topics. Small groups may focus on confidence building, anger management, changing families/divorce, friendship, social skills or school success skills. Children can also be invited to yoga groups where we practise mindfulness. The strategies taught here are especially helpful for children with anxiety or attention difficulties.
