Service Description

Children, adolescents, parents and other guardians can turn to educational and family counseling centers for help with educational issues, personal or family-related problems, and questions and conflicts related to separations and divorces.

Depending on the age of the child or adolescent, the reason for visiting a counseling center can be, for example, developmental delays, sleep, eating and speech disorders or fears. At school age, performance and behavioral problems often occur, which can increase in intensity during puberty. Parents often feel overwhelmed with parenting responsibilities.
