New Specialist Counselling Service for Young People

New Specialist Counselling Service for Young People

A Specialist Counselling Service for Children and Young People has launched in Castlepoint and Rochford, Southend and Mid Essex.

A new specialist Counselling Service for Young People aged 5 to 18 years (or up to 25 if in receipt of an Education, Health and Care Plan) has recently been introduced for people living in Southend, Castle Point & Rochford and Mid Essex.

The service is open young people aged five to 18 years (or up to 25 if in receipt of an Education, Health and Care Plan).

The campaign is in response to an increased demand for mental health support for children and young people.

Young people will have varied experiences of the lockdown period.  For some, it will mostly have been a safe and enjoyable time. For others, it will have been challenging or traumatic. Children may be anxious about returning to the classroom and the transition from home to school may be stressful. Some children may have worries about COVID-19, have experienced a bereavement, a change in family circumstances such as unemployment, friendship and relationship issues and bullying. They may feel very uncertain about their future.

If you want access to this service or know someone who does, please send an email.
