ACIS Youth Parent and Family

If you are someone in a parental role whose child is in therapy, it is important to remember that seeking support for yourself is a positive step towards understanding and supporting your child's mental health journey.

What we offer

  • Free one-to-one counselling for parents/caregivers whose child is in therapy
  • A consultation service for parents/caregivers who want to discuss specific issues in a one off appointment
  • In person, online, or by telephone.

It is common for those in a parental role to experience a range of emotions when their child is in therapy. Seeking counselling for yourself can help you process these emotions, gain support, and develop effective coping strategies.  Taking care of your own mental and emotional well-being is crucial when supporting a child in therapy and can enable you to be more present and supportive for your child.

Remember, seeking counselling for yourself, as a parent or caregiver, is a sign of strength and commitment to your child’s well-being.  By taking care of your own mental health, you can better support your child’s therapeutic journey and create a nurturing environment for their emotional growth.

How can you access the service

You can either self-refer or request your child's counsellor make a referral on your behalf.
