Empowering Futures Through Compassionate, Science-Proven Counselling Services

At Pivot Counselling, fostering resilience in your child goes beyond talk therapy.  When kids acquire the skills to navigate life’s challenges, they become better at coping with future hardships. These basic skills help them to convert problems and struggles into tools that make them stronger individuals.

More School Days

Equip your child to face each school day with confidence, resilience, and a positive mindset. Counselling can empower kids to overcome obstacles, making school a more welcome place of growth and learning.  


Sometimes talking to someone other than a parent can make the difference in getting your child to view the stressors of home and school more hopeful.

Healthier Friendships

When children build emotional intelligence, they form stronger connections. Our counselling services help kids develop social skills, fostering friendships that contribute to their well-being.  More importantly children learn to develop strong values which they will build and nurture over time.  

Greater Independence

We guide your child toward independence and success by providing the tools for meaningful change. Parents who choose Pivot Counselling ensure their kids have the resources to become balanced, adaptable, and well-adjusted individuals.
