Loss and Grief Counselling for Children and Young People

I am experienced in supporting children and young people over the age of 10, who are grieving.

Children and young people are affected by losses in a different way to an adult.

This is because their understanding of the loss and what has happened very much depends on their age .

Children and young people would be affected by the loss of a family member, whether through death or separation, if a beloved pet has died, if there is a change o their routine, or perhaps a friendship or relationship has ended.

What would my child or young person be expected to do?

I am aware that it is only natural that children and young people might not want to talk to someone they don't know, especially an adult, at first.

Building a good relationship with your child involves me and your child getting to know each other, so I would spend time building their trust and confidence. until your child feels able to trust me to help them and support them with their very personal worries and concerns.

The Benefits for your Child

Having the chance to talk to a trained counsellor about what has happened will help your child process their confused feelings and emotions.

Grief can feel strange and overwhelming, but when a child or young person understands that their feelings are valid and that it's okay to grieve, then they begin to feel less scared and confused.

About Telephone Counselling

If you choose telephone counselling, you will be called by me on your mobile number at our booked appointment time.

Make yourself comfortable in a quiet , private place where you won't be disturbed. When you are ready, let me know and we can begin our counselling session.

In my quiet, private counselling room, headphones will be worn by me to ensure your complete privacy.

About Online Counselling

After you have booked your counselling session and chosen to use Zoom, you will receive an e-mail from me, this will contain a link, a password and a number which you will need to enter to join the Zoom call, once you click onto the link.

If you choose Zoom counselling for your initial consultation, I will talk you through the Zoom set up if you need to learn your way around the Zoom platform, so that you are comfortable with using Zoom before we begin our consultation. This set up tutorial is provided with your initial consultation, however you will receive a full 50 minutes of counselling after your tutorial.

You can choose to use the Zoom call to chat in real time too during the consultation, I will show you how this works if needed.

Things you might want to know....

I am DBS checked and I have had specialist training (Level 5 equivalent) in counselling children and young people.

I am more than happy for you to call or e-mail me to have a chat before you decide to choose me as your child's counsellor, I'm also happy to speak to your child too and answer any questions they may want to ask me.
