In 2018, the Call Mira helpline and parent workshops at schools were launched. Through the helpline and engagements with the parents, we learned about the many challenges children face at home and school.
The Zubin Foundation’s Children’s Counselling Centre serves children aged 5-15 in the ethnic minority community, providing them support through free one-to-one counselling in English and Hindi/Urdu. The counselling sessions help children looking to enhance their social and emotional skills to manage everyday stress and anxiety, gain confidence, improve social relationships, resolve conflicts, and discover essential tools to help them thrive and unleash their greatest potential.
Some common issues our clients come to talk to us about are:
Abuse (physical, emotional, sexual)
|Behaviour issues||Bullying||Depression||Family/ Relationship conflict|
|Gaming/Internet Addiction||Low Self Esteem||Social Skills Building||Special Education Needs (Mild to Moderate)|

We operate from Monday to Saturday (except Sundays and Public Holidays) at Zubin’s Family Centre (Austin MTR, Exit D2, a 5-minute walk). Please refer to our policy in case of bad weather here.
