Counselling Services

The recent increase of Special Educational Needs (SEN) students has raised the public’s concern with integrating them into mainstream schools. Ages 0-6 is the golden period for SEN children to receive suitable therapy, early assistance, counselling and training. These methods can help improve their abilities, and at the same time, largely increase their chance of admission to mainstream schools. Additionally, emotional and behavioural issues of SEN children often bring major pressures and challenges to parents and teachers. As a result, the public address of Hong Kong Government has decided to allocate 4.6 billion of funds in treating young SEN children.

In view of this, Eureka have cordially invited Hong Kong Music Therapy and Counselling Association to join our school counselling courses. Individual and group trainings will be organised by our counselling psychologists, in which featured activities, including play therapy, social and emotional training, and concentration training will be a focus.

  • Create an environment to change and build up a safe and trustworthy relationship through sincere acceptance, understanding, respect, and encourage them to make their own decisions
