Child counselling is a sort of therapy aimed at young children, teenagers, and adolescents who are suffering from one or more mental diseases. It also helps young people who have been through trauma or who live in a dysfunctional home situation. Many of the challenges these children confront are similar to those that adults face on a daily basis. The goal of child counsellors is to assist children in better interpreting the challenges they are dealing with and/or the trauma they have experienced. Child counsellors are trained in the treatment of various issues like anxiety, depression, Sleeping Disorder, behavior difficulties, Child Bullying, Parenting Concerns, hyperactivity, low self-esteem, self-harm, and even post traumatic symptoms
