Counselling for Children and Young People


Many children are struggling with how they feel. They may be having problems with friends, family or school; or they may be anxious, depressed, angry, or fearful, and need to talk to someone – but find it difficult to talk to people they know.

Counselling provides a space to process these feelings, and the chance to work through strategies to relieve the problems.

Our children’s counsellors work in various ways, dependent on the needs of the child, often using creative methods that put the child at ease. They also possess the specialist knowledge and skills needed to work with children on the autistic spectrum, and looked-after children.

If you would like to discuss further please contact us to be put in touch with Helen or Evelyn.

Young People

Counselling helps young people deal with issues and events that are having a detrimental effect on their mental well-being. Rainbow provides counselling for young people who are struggling with a range of problems, such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, bullying, anger relationships, low self-esteem, or self-harm.

Our counsellors make use of a variety of methods and models of therapy to help teenagers and young adults to understand the problems that they are facing, and to explore strategies for coping with them.
