Community based counselling services
Brighton & Hove
Children and young people who are feeling low, anxious or stressed can receive support from the Brighton & Hove Wellbeing Service, which provides an integrated, joined-up offer with one ‘front door’ leading to the most appropriate support as quickly as possible.
Several support choices are available: counselling, CBT, “e-wellbeing” (online counselling), groupwork, canine-assisted therapy, dramatherapy, play therapy, and also community-based support (Mind the Gap) and general emotional health support (based at the Youth Advice Centre).
This service also has counsellors available who specialise in working with children and young people who identify as:
- ASD/LD (autistic spectrum disorder or learning disability)
- BME (black and minority ethnic)
- LGBTQI+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or intersex)
