When the Counselor knows you better

You Might Talk! Talking is a healthy way to express feelings. Kids are more ready to learn when someone listens to how they feel.

Play and draw -. Counselors use games that teach things like taking your time on schoolwork or other tasks. Some games teach kids how to try again instead of giving up. Drawing can teach about feelings.

Do activities –  Counselors might teach lessons about feelings, coping skills, or facing fears. Activities help make these lessons more fun.

Practice new skills –  A Counsellor might teach you skills like mindfulness and calm breathing. These take practice. Counselors help you practice what you’re learning.

Solve problems – Your Counselor will ask about how problems affect you at home and at school. They will talk with you about how to solve these problems.
