Children and Young People

We recognise the importance of the emotional health of children and young people and the impact on the whole family when a young person is struggling. We have been providing counselling and other emotional health services to thousands of young people in Derbyshire and East Staffordshire from our Relate offices and in secondary and primary schools. We offer a safe place for young people to talk about their thoughts and feelings in private without making them feel judged. This can make a positive difference to their lives.

We also work closely with other organisations that support children and young people to help deliver local support appropriate for your child’s needs. If we can’t help, we will our best to find another specialist service which can.
