How We Can Help

As client-centred therapists we believe that each young person has the ability to manage the issues they face. We create the right conditions for clients to take ownership of their situation and find ways to achieve their aims. Being trained and experienced in various counselling approaches allows us to provide the support best suited to each young person.


How We Work

We take client confidentiality very seriously and set clear boundaries for what we will and will not keep confidential to ensure client safety. This allows the young person to feel safe to explore their thoughts and feelings.

With 15 years of providing therapy in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors, we have gained a wealth of experience and contacts.

Being BACP registered means that counsellors have achieved a high level of training and have a commitment to do the best for each client.

Our bright, comfortable rooms give us the flexibility to work in the most appropriate way and gives clients lots of choice over how they would like to work – whether it’s creatively, through play, using therapeutic resources or simply talking. We have created a space that is suitable for all ages and we are confident that it will help clients to feel safe and nurtured.
