Counselling can help with a range of emotional and mental health issues such as anxiety and low mood or depression, can support young people with emotional needs relating to a physical health condition for example, childhood obesity, illness. It can also support those children who have experienced trauma and difficult life events such as impact from family breakdown, parental mental health, domestic abuse, substance misuse or other forms of abuse.
Our counselling offers an integrated approach whereby parents or carers are supported and encouraged to engage with the counselling process which we believe could have improved outcomes for the child and family. It is generally provided face to face and our counsellors may use different techniques, such as creative and play therapies, art therapies and CBT techniques to help support a wider child and family centred approach.
Counselling generally benefits both historic or new presentations, can help to improve self-esteem and confidence, reduce anxiety and increase mood and overall can help children build resilience and coping strategies for the future.
6-8 sessions, generally weekly
