Butterfly Counselling Services provides counselling for students attending college.

We have many years of experience providing counselling therapy for children, adolescents, young people, parents, families and adults. College is a time when students not only have stress and anxiety academically, but also with personal issues.

Each young person is unique and because of this we integrate various therapeutic models including person-centred therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), EMDR, creative work, transactional analysis, gestalt therapy.
