What we do 

With over a decade’s experience delivering these highly specialised services, we are trusted providers of young people’s counselling support and advice. 

Our specialist team of qualified Counsellors are dedicated to providing the very best support to young people giving them the tools and resilience to cope with and overcome life’s challenges. We know that where possible early intervention can prevent problems escalating.

Through our work in schools we provide an additional resource for parents and teachers, working with them and the young people to bring about improvements in students’ mental health and emotional wellbeing. This in turn improves their capacity to engage with studying and learning. Our specialist team works with issues around:

  • Self-harm and suicide prevention
  • Helping young people to identify their triggers
  • Building resilience and using alternative coping strategies  

 We do this by:

  • Delivering one to one support and group support  
  • Working creatively with art and play to help young people express themselves 
  • If required, referring a young person for additional support

We are grateful for the funding we have received from Children in Need which helps us reach even more young people. 

Our approach

Co-production lies at the heart of all our service delivery. Placing young people at the heart of all we do, we develop a personalised early support package designed to address issues impacting on a young persons emotional health and wellbeing. 

We work with young people to develop strategies to reduce psychological distress and support them to achieve their personal goals.
