Our Specialist Children and Young People’s Counsellor and Advanced Skills Teacher can work alongside you and your family, to extend your young person’s strengths and build upon their challenges to interact and engage more successfully with the world around them.
Most counselling sessions are available remotely via Zoom video chat. Specific packages include:
Therapeutic session(s) following diagnosis
Processing a new diagnosis can be challenging. We offer 1:1 session(s) to support parents and carers through their emotional understanding of the diagnosis (for parents/carers, without children present).
How to communicate a diagnosis with the young person
Sharing information about this discovery with your young person is a pivotal moment. We have a number of practical solutions that would help support you and your family at this time (for parents/carers, without children present).
Counselling for the young person on the Autistic Spectrum
If the young person wishes to attend, then specialist counselling can be offered to them. This might work upon the discovery itself or the strengths and challenges this brings.
If the young person has an interest in Lego®, working therapeutically using this medium can be enjoyable and rewarding once strengths and challenges have been identified. This 1:1 therapy is only available in person.
Young person profile & targeted intervention plan

Remote appointments with both the primary caregiver and school representative
Visiting the young person in situ and observing their educational experience
Report of key findings and recommendations for moving forwards
Discussion with both caregivers and school representative to give recommendations
A bespoke package can be discussed.
Support following an inconclusive assessment
This session is for parents and carers to understand what steps they might take to support their child after an inconclusive assessment process.
Counselling for the young person (General)
