Children and Young Person Counselling in Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire

If you've got stuff going on at home or at school, it can be tough trying to figure it out by yourself. Children and Young People's Counselling with Relate Severn and Wye can help you talk over any difficult issues and think about what you'd like to do. 

What's Children and Young People's Counselling?

If it's bullying, stress over exams, your parents splitting up, arguments with friends, problems with your girlfriend or boyfriend or you're just feeling a bit low, we're here to help.

Counsellor Graham explains how it works:

What happens in a counselling session?

When you meet your counsellor, you'll have a chance to talk about whatever's on your mind. They won't judge you or tell you what to do, they'll just listen. Anything you say is just between you and them - and that includes your parents. Having someone to talk to who isn't involved can be a really good way of thinking about things. Sometimes just talking about it out out loud is enough to make a start. 

Who can have counselling?

We provide Children and Young People's Counselling for people aged 7-19 (or up to 20 if you're in full time education).

Last August we felt we 'lost' our daughter. When she went into an emotional response her behaviour escalated to a scale higher than previously witnessed. We used the strategies previously used, but they did not work this time. We were referred to Relate. Our daughter did not want to go anywhere or see anyone, but she began to look forward to the sessions. Through the work your counsellor was doing with her, our daughter was coming back to us.

Our daughter has learned how to express and verbalise her anxieties using her words rather than aggressive, emotional behaviour and actions. She is going to school, she is going out and about. She is back!

Thank you for being there. Thanks you for understanding. Thank you for accepting in a non judgmental, caring and calm approach.
