Abstract

This article was developed based on the literature review with the intention of isolating health issues which affect children aged between 0-5 years and how these issues can inform the psychosocial needs in child counselling. Counselling children is a growing area of interest in contemporary society, especially amongst members of the counselling profession. Developmental psychologists have studied children's growth and development focusing on the effect of childhood experiences in adulthood, whereas child psychiatrists have focused on mentally disturbed children. It is apparent that children with learning, social, or behavioural problems who are not classified as mentally disturbed have been largely overlooked. These represent the target clientele for psychosocial counselling. Child counselling can prevent some problem situations from becoming more serious through degeneration to delinquency, school failure, antisocial conduct, and emotional disturbance.
