Recommend a really good counsellor for 11-12 year olds?

Postby swiftcurrent on Tue Feb 04, 2014 6:11 pm

Hello there.

We are in need of finding someone for our daughter to speak with regarding school, friendships and all that comes with this age. She has so much anxiety about school friends and fitting in. First year in middle school. It has been heart wrenching....
Any good recommendations from experienced counsellor would be very much appreciated. We always start with word of mouth and past good experiences from others.

Thank you so much in advance~

Just noticed there haven't been any responses so thought I would chime in. Perhaps you've found what you need by now but just in case, I would suggest chatting with the secretary or the principal or Vice. They are often up to date with resources like that. Or perhaps your school has a counsellor you can ask? I would also be tempted to call Allison Rees, who I don't believe counsels kids but would probably have some names to suggest.
Maybe bumping this post will make it noticed again by someone with a personal suggestion.

I was sure this post had garnered a few responses and recommendations. It was posted in the cafe as well as here, and the cafe post got the responses.
