Children struggle with problems too. Our Specialist Children’s Counselling Services for Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire can help.
Is your child finding it difficult to cope with sadness, grief, anxiety, worry, anger, relationship or behavioural problems? Children who are struggling sometimes experience difficulty communicating about what is troubling them and often don’t know how to deal with things. This is very worrying for parents too.
At Possibilities, we have expertise in child counselling, psychotherapy and family therapy to help your child resolve their issues, learn to cope better and regain their confidence.
All of our post-graduate specialist counselling psychotherapists are very experienced, highly qualified and professionally registered (UKCP). All have undergone safety DBS checks and receive regular supervision.
Does my child need therapy?
If your child is having difficulty with their day-to-day life, behaving in an increasingly upsetting or challenging ways, or if they seem withdrawn and preoccupied over a period of time, it’s worth getting in touch with us. While children can swing from mood to mood quickly, longer periods of feeling upset or negative behaviours are generally a sign that something is out of place.
In modern life, children and families face many complex and challenging issues. Parents often feel guilty and very worried when their child is having problems. Seeking counselling for your child doesn’t mean you’ve failed as a parent. Instead, it means you recognise your child is upset and needs additional help. We will involve you at every stage of the process.
Do you offer therapy for parents too?
Yes. We also offer parent counselling and consultation for parents who are concerned about their child’s well-being and who want to improve their parenting.
Allow us to reassure you that professional help is at hand. We offer services that aim to reduce the fear and uncertainty about getting help. Arrange an initial consultation ‘taster’ session to discuss your needs, in privacy and comfort, to obtain a sense of how we help and for if this is the right direction for you.
And the day came when the risk (it took) to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
What our previous clients have said
I experienced severe trauma and developed a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder which meant I wasn’t coping well with day to day life. With CBT Therapy at Possibilities, I’ve made a number of positive changes. It was a struggle at times but my psychotherapist helped me feel safe and capable as we worked through things. I’m now back at work and my confidence is growing. I have a life again. I’m so glad I took that scary first step and called. If you’re feeling unsure, I highly recommend you call them too.
– JT, Aberdeenshire: Trauma Counselling Aberdeen.
I thought my life wasn’t worth living. My depression convinced me I was worthless and useless and my situation was hopeless. If you’re feeling something similar, go to Possibilities. They made an enormous difference to my life and they can do the same for you.
– AD, Aberdeen: Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy for Depression.
My relationship with my partner has vastly improved. We’re more able to communicate and we’re spending more time together and having fun! I can’t believe we were on the verge of separating when we contacted Possibilities as a last resort. I can’t thank them enough.
– SMcM, Aberdeenshire: Couples Counselling Aberdeen.
Possibilities was outstanding. I’ve overcome my anxiety and have the tools to keep it at bay should I need them in the future.

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it.
