Central Coast Trauma Centre

Children & Young People

Help kids and teens grow strong and happy, guiding them to learn, overcome challenges, and have fun on their way to a bright future.

Children Young People

We fully understand that the world young people grow up in today is filled with unique challenges and pressures unlike those of any previous generation. It's not always easy going through the complexities of modern life, especially with the added layers of social media, academic expectations, and the quest to fit in.

Our main goal is to offer a warm, secure, and inviting environment where children and teenagers can share their thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment.

Here, they will find a supportive community ready to listen and help. We aim to equip them with the tools and coping strategies they need to manage the ups and downs of life effectively. This means not only helping them through the hard times but also teaching them to celebrate and make the most of the good times.

Our Mission

Helping little hearts heal and grow

Our main goal is really simple, we want to make sure that every kid or teenager who comes to us feels important, listened to, and strong enough to handle tough times with confidence. We work hard to make a place where they can talk freely and feel safe, knowing that we really care about what they have to say.

We don't just listen, we also teach them skills and give them knowledge so they feel ready to take on challenges. We want them to believe in themselves and know how to deal with problems in a positive way.

In short, we're here to help them feel good about themselves and ready to face anything with a strong heart and mind.

Comments Marlih Jung BJ is a highly skilled trauma councillor, What you need to know about trauma. To release trauma, one must acknowledge it first. Seek professional help if needed. Express emotions through therapy. Time and patience are essential for healing and recovery. Trauma therapy is a specialized approach to help individuals heal from emotional wounds. It employs evidence-based techniques to address trauma's impact. Skilled therapists provide a safe space for processing emotions and building resilience, promoting recovery and improved mental health. Wishing BJ much success in her new Centre.

BJ has an extensive knowledge of trauma and it's impacts on the brain and the body. I had not heard of brainspotting prior to making my first appointment, and honestly I was sceptical of it, but needed help with trauma.  BJ created a safe and supportive environment that allowed me to explore my thoughts and feelings without judgment, or trying to intellectualise them. What impressed me the most was the tangible impact of brainspotting. It is so different to other kinds of therapy, you don't sit and talk about traumatic events, it lets your brain process it. After a few sessions things got a bit better. Now 6 months in and my ability to deal with triggers and to emotionally regulate has improved beyond measure, am very grateful.

Choosing BJ as the therapist to help me work through my anxiety and childhood trauma has been the best decision I've made all year. She's caring, has always validated my emotions and helps me work through them with the use of brain spotting. I really can't thank BJ enough. I feel like a different person, all for the better! If you're wanting to start that scary journey of healing trauma, I would highly recommend choosing BJ ❤️

BJ is very skilled in her approach. I appreciated being affirmed, having emotions validated and the explanation of how those emotions can manifest in a physical expression.
