We have five designated children’s workers. They practise person centred therapy with children aged 4 and upwards. There is a special therapy room for the children where they can express themselves through talking, play, art and writing. Many of the children are facing real difficulties in their lives. These include bereavement, divorce, abuse, neglect, bullying, low self esteem and depression. Each child is given unconditional acceptance of who they are, empathy, no judgement and a safe place to be. Through the empowering process of working with their counsellors the children can find the resilience to go on, self esteem, joy, acceptance of who they are and the ability to say how they feel without being misunderstood and judged.
We work in a number of schools where we provide one to one counselling. The children and young people can be seen at the school or at the Focus Counselling Offices. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you need more information.
