Our 1:1 short-term interventions are provided for children, young people and their parents or carers who are suffering trauma due to the death or terminal illness of a relative or close friend. Services are delivered at venues throughout Nottinghamshire.
In normalising their feelings at an early stage, children and young people can adapt more quickly to their loss and the risk of adverse behaviour and mental health problems will be reduced.
Although it is a natural part of life the loss of someone close can be a distressing and overwhelming experience, especially for children and young people.
What's right for one child, isn't necessarily right for another and so once a child has been referred to us, we carry out an initial assessment to decide what is needed, whether it's working with one of our counsellors one on one, Filial Therapy, peer support groups or telephone advice.
