Counselling for Children and Young People
Children and Young People can often find it difficult to know what they are feeling, or why they are feeling a particular way. Additionally, their emotional lives often get expressed through their behaviour which can make it even harder for parents or caretakers to know how to support them or how to help them through difficult patches. Counselling can help young people to develop the capacity and skills to deal with their emotional world and learn new ways of getting the support they need from the adults in their lives.
Sometimes children and young people need a private space to work things out with a counsellor; sometimes the therapy is best carried out with the family group. After an initial consultation your family therapist will agree with you the best way forward.
All families go through difficult times during which we can struggle to find a way to talk, listen and solve problems. Family therapy can provide a space for family members to learn to listen and talk to each other in a way that solves problems rather than creating them. The role of the family therapist is to facilitate understanding and communication in an environment which is non-judgemental and non-blaming.
Sliding scale up to £52 for individual therapy and £60 for couples and family therapy.
Our premises has one therapy room which is accessible to wheelchairs, but currently there is stepped access to the toilet facilities.
