Counselling anD WellBeing
Due to the nature of our work, many children often disclose personal information about their wellbeing, or we become aware that some children may need additional emotional support. In order to support our young people, we are delighted to have a link with the BACP accredited agency Kooth. Kooth, from XenZone, is an online counselling and emotional wellbeing platform for children and young people, accessible through mobile, tablet and desktop and free at the point of use. Confidential and anonymous, children as young as 10 can make an account.
Children can speak to a professional, qualified member of the team who provide young people with a short block of face to face counselling if they feel this is necessary. They will also refer to other agencies if they feel it would be safer to do so. Please visit their website for more information.
The Early Energy Centre can refer any child to Kooth for a short series of counselling sessions, or to other agencies if appropriate. Whenever possible, this will be done in agreement and after consultation with the parents. In some extreme circumstances, however, this may not be possible. We will always act in the best interests of the child.
