We provide counselling for children and young people aged 7-21, providing the understanding and acceptance needed to allow them to strengthen their roots and flourish in their unique way – thriving rather than just surviving.
Areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, stress, self-esteem, bereavement, trauma, confidence, self-harm and family or relationship difficulties.
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.
Being passionate about what we do means it’s really important for us to provide the right environment for our clients. Our bright, comfortable room gives 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.
“I feel that my mood has improved and it has given me the skills to cope with difficult situations. I know I need to step back before reacting to things and talk to my family more. It has really helped me through a difficult time”
“Counselling has improved my ability to think clearly and live healthily drastically, I was taught to feel less guilty and I could easily talk without judgement. I am able to live with less worry and anxiety which helps me make important changes.”
“Therapy sessions helped me to realise the reasons why I felt the way I did and how to tackle it. They made me realise that my choices can be different.”
“Therapy has helped me when I didn't think it could and it's amazing. Talking to someone about my issues and them not judging me. I know now that I need to talk to people about my issues more.”
