Counselling for children and non offending families
Not all children who have experienced child sexual assault need counselling.
When a child is experiencing signs that impact negatively on their home life, school, and social life, it may indicate that counselling may be helpful.
Common symptoms that could indicate your child would benefit from counselling include:
• bedwetting or soiling
• demanding or aggressive behaviour
• low self-esteem
• difficulty relating to adults and peers
• abuse of alcohol or drugs
• seemingly accident prone
• feeling suicidal or attempting suicide
• having difficulty concentrating
• being withdrawn or overly obedient
• being reluctant to go home
• creating stories, or drawings about abuse
