Children's Counselling


Who is it for?:

We work with children aged from 5 years upwards.


How can counselling help my child?:

Children's social development and progress at school can be severely affected by emotional problems.


These may include:


Difficulties may be triggered by events such as:


or there may be no clear 'reason' for the problem.


Counselling helps children:


What's involved?:

First of all, one of our experienced counsellors will meet with the child and parents or main carers to discuss the problem and assess how to help. The child will then meet with the counsellor for fifty minutes each week, at a regular time; the number of sessions will be agreed between the child, the counsellor and the parent/carer.


As children often find it hard to put their feelings into words, the counselling process often involves using play and art to communicate, as well as talking - each child finds their own way to express themselves.


The child's needs and wishes are central to the process. The counsellor's role is to develop a safe, respectful and trusting relationship where the child can 'tell their story', and problems can be thought about and coped with.


We will involve parents and carers in regular reviews of progress; the counsellor will discuss this with those concerned.


What about confidentiality:

We will not share information about your child with anyone outside the counselling service, unless we have your consent to do so. The only exception to this is if the child's safety is at risk. The counsellor will discuss this with you, and with the child, at the first appointments.


How do I make an appointment?:

To make an initial appointment to discuss the problems, and to see whether counselling is right for your child, please contact your local centre:
