We are often asked at Rainbow if we can help children or young people and so this week we wanted to highlight this service in particular.

Schools qualified counsellors for young peopleChildren and young people may have particular needs that may be different to adults coming to counselling. Some common themes that may crop up in this work include anxiety, anger, fear, bereavement, school problems, self harm, relationships and self esteem to name a few.

Our children’s and young people’s counsellors offer a service tailored specifically to each child or young person. Often this can involve creative methods such as sand tray work or art, as these have been demonstrated to be of particular help to this group, perhaps when talking and words feel too hard to express. But of course each person is unique and your child would be empowered to work in a way that they feel most comfortable with. We have particular experience in the Rainbow team with ways of working with children/young people on the autistic spectrum, and also looked-after children.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch to find out more about what we can offer in this area. Our counsellors working with children/young people – Rachael, Evelyn and Helen – would be only too happy to talk through how they might be able to help.
