Other areas of counselling we deal with

We are experienced in working with young people from different backgrounds and cultures, both inside and outside of the education system, and some of our practitioners have worked in schools, and organisations such as ChildLine, The Place to Be and CAMHS (NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services).

We also work therapeutically with parents helping them to reflect on current dynamics and difficulties whilst processing, and making sense of their feelings regarding their own past. Through the work we help parents to explore and understand their child’s behaviour and emotional challenges, by helping them to develop greater self-awareness, insight, self-acceptance and understanding of themselves, and their relationship to their child.
