We are so proud of the work we do and the feedback and testimonials we receive from both children and their parent / carers at the end of the 8 week course of 1-2-1 therapeutic counselling sessions. You can see above some of the recent feedback we have received. The most common words that appear in our feedback forms post-session when asked how the children / young people feel are confident, listened to, strong and powerful. If you would like to see more, we often share case studies and quotes on our Instagram page.
Case studies of children / young people and their experience using our 1-2-1 services can be found in our Impact Report.
