Deaf counsellor promotes sessions in sign language
October 30, 2017
Celia King, a deaf counsellor from New Zealand says it is best for the deaf to get counselling from someone who knows sign language.
It is because English is used as a second language by the deaf community.
Celia says the deaf community face mental health problems same like everyone else.
But the counselling approach to handle deaf clients has to be different.
Deaf people may take more time to openly discuss their problems due to fear or feelings of shame.
She suggests the government to provide funding to deaf counsellors to work with deaf clients.
