How Counselling Might Help Your Child

Anyone at any age, from child to adult, may benefit from counselling at points in their life.

Children and young people have counselling for lots of reasons, some are learning how to manage feelings like anger and sadness, some may be coping with loss, some may need help with friendship groups, and some just don’t feel right and want to feel better.

Counselling is a process where from a safe and supportive environment the counsellor will help your child, or the person you care for, learn how to help themselves. It will help them work through their difficulties and work out coping strategies. The main aims of counselling are:

  • To support the child to make changes in their life
  • To learn to understand and cope with difficult emotions
  • To identify specific problems
  • To identify goals the child would like to work on

Our counsellors have been carefully selected for their experience and their ability to understand the pressures and conflicts young people face today and are all checked through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) to assess their suitability to work with young people. All of our counsellors are registered with the BACP and have regular clinical supervision and CPD.

We are able to deliver our services thanks, in part, to the generous support of these organisations
