Counselling for young people

GroceryAid has partnered with Relate to provide funded counselling and support for children and young people. Relate has Centres across the UK and a network of licensed local counsellors offering counselling in person, over the phone and online so you can choose the support that works for you.

Young People’s Counselling Ages 11-18

If young people in your family are experiencing problems at school, issues with family members of friends or generally not feeling like themselves. Counselling lets them talk about how they feel, separate from school and home life and can help them get back to enjoying life. GroceryAid also offers online counselling for young people via Kooth.

Children’s Counselling Ages 5-10

Relate offer a children’s counselling service for children between the ages of five and ten. The focus will always be around the wellbeing and experience of your child, even though you or those with parental responsibility for your child may be present. Children’s counselling might be offered to a child struggling with things like stress or anxiety, family change like a parental divorce, or academic pressure.

You can read more about the different types of counselling or to chat with Relate about what to expect here.
