Counselling offers

Counselling offers children a safe place to explore their thoughts, feelings and reactions to their new situation safe in the knowledge that they will not be judged or criticised. . The changes taking place in children’s lives can be confusing and frightening, we aim to help the children deal with these concerns and move forward in their lives.
