We recognise that relationship difficulties affect children and young people too. This service is designed to support children through the process of:
- Parental divorce and separation
- New step-parents/siblings
- Difficulties in relationships generally (at school, with peers, with parents)
- Loss and bereavement
- School transition
- Witnessing domestic violence in the family home
Who do we offer the service to?
The service is offered to children aged 10+. Appointments will usually be made within Relate’s Northampton Centre although we also counsel at a number of schools within the county. Parental consent must be given to those aged under 13. We can also provide a therapeutic play service to children from the age of 5. It should be noted that this service can require far more sessions.
The service is confidential, no disclosures will be made to parents without the express permission of the child/young person.
