Certain types of "difficult behaviour" are most often, though not exclusively exhibited by childrenwith learning developmental disabilities,those from dysfunctionalfamilies, aggressive and violent backgrounds and some children in looked after care (LAC) facilities.

Due to the complexity of counselling there are many different approaches to supporting a client through the counselling process. CQT are able to provide support through various different types of counselling.

Psychodynamic counselors whose approach provides a broad range of therapeutic approaches. Problems like depression; anxiety, anger and social isolation can all be successfully treated and improved using some form of psychodynamic approach.

EMDR Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapists: This is a form of psychotherapy that was developed to resolve symptoms resulting from disturbing and unresolved life experiences.

EMDR is thought to imitate the psychological state that we enter into when in rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Studies show that when in REM sleep we are able to make new associations between things very rapidly - EMDR may be tapping into this high speed processing mode that we all have but often can't access. The theory is that EMDR works directly with memory networks and enhances information processing by creating associations between the distressing memory and more adaptive information in other memory networks.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy clinicians and therapists: This combines Cognitive and Behavioural techniques. Clients are taught ways to change thoughts and expectations and relaxation techniques are used. It has been effective for stress-related ailments, phobias, obsessions, eating disorders and (at the same time as drug treatment) major depression.
