5-7 year olds
Cambridge Lifeskills provides complementary counselling services to the 13 public schools in the Cambridge district – funded entirely by our community.
Our counsellors work with tamariki and rangatahi five – 15 years old with family frequently included in the work we do with the children.
8-15 year olds
Cambridge High School students who are seeking counselling are encouraged to access the C.H.S counselling service in the first instance.
If your young person would like to see a private counsellor outside of school, please contact Lifeskills for advice and suggestions to suit his/her individual needs.
Email us at: email@example.com or phone 021 190 1760 and leave a message and one of the team will get back to asap.
What we do offer counselling for?
General counselling where tamariki, rangatahi and whanau need support to work through a specific event or situation such as:
Friendship struggle, Parental break-up, grief etc…
We do routinely refer students to other more appropriate services; this is to ensure that a young person and family receive the support that is best in both the short term and longer-term. Please don’t be offended if we refer you on, we want what is best for your child and sometimes that is not Lifeskills.
