Children & Young People’s Services

Relate is one of the largest providers of counselling and support services for children and young people, with more than 20 year’s experience.

There are lots of reasons why you might need a bit of extra help with things going on in your life – problems with friends, parents teachers or in your love life.

If you’re not feeling like yourself, talking to someone who’s not involved in what’s going on can really help.

Reach is a service for children and young people living in Coventry, aged 5-18, who are experiencing low level mental health concerns, for example low self-esteem and /or confidence, anger or anxiety.

Services include:

  • Counselling – Face to face or online
  • Therapeutic Group Work
  • Online self-help tools and activities

For referrals

The current referral process for professionals is to use the CW Rise site: Referrals to Reach.

For self-referrals, please call Relate Coventry and Warwickshire on 024 7622 5863

Rise is a family of NHS-led services providing emotional wellbeing and mental health services for children and young people in Coventry and Warwickshire.

Rise aims to build resilience and empower children and young people (as well as the adults in their lives) to know where to go for help and advice.

It’s made up of a number of different services, each led by mental health specialists.

Relate is one of the largest providers of counselling and support services for children and young people, with more than 20 year’s experience.

Nationally we provide services in more than 600 schools and help over 15,000 children and young people a year.

We provide services in primary, secondary and SEN schools.

We work primarily with clients at the preventative end of the mental health spectrum ( CAMHS Tiers 1 and 2)

By operating early intervention services in schools, Relate helps to prevent young people with mild to moderate mental health difficulties from developing more acute mental health difficulties that would require Tier 3 and 4 services.

At the heart of our Time For You children and young people’s service is one-to-one counselling support for those affected by issues such as family breakdown, bullying and peer relationships, bereavement, step-families or the absence of a family member in their life.

A study of school based counselling found that 90% of teachers said that it made a positive difference to students.

The opportunity to talk to a trusted, professional counsellor has a positive impact on children and young people. It can help increase their self esteem and confidence, enable them to communicate better with their peers, teachers and families, and increase their ability to focus and engage with learning.

We collect data to demonstrate the effectiveness of our work and can produce individual, tailored reports for your school.

All of our counsellors work within a clinical framework of ongoing supervision and continuous professional development to ensure the highest professional standards.

What Coventry and Warwickshire schools tell us

“Each child who has attended sessions has been emotionally better as a result and has been able to engage in school life, their achievements have also benefitted.”

“The children are much calmer and are more able to cope with day-to-day demands. It has also increased their self awareness and self-esteem.”

“ Our students have confidence in a bespoke system which they know wont fail them. They feel in control of their referrals and take a mature attitude towards the help available to them”

What is Children and Young People’s Counselling?

Children and Young People’s Counselling is for any young person who’s having problems.

Counselling can help no matter what’s on your mind. If it’s bullying, your parents splitting up, arguments with friends or you’re just feeling a bit low, we’re here to help you deal with it.

Some people think that counselling is just for people who have really serious problems, but it’s not. Counselling is just a chance to talk over what’s bothering you.

What happens in a counselling session?

When you see your counsellor, you’ll have a chance to chat about what’s on your mind. They won’t judge you or tell you what to think or do, and they won’t look down on you because you’re young. They’ll respect you and listen to what you have to say.

Having someone to talk to outside of your home and school life can help you see your problems in a new light and help you work out how to cope with your feelings.
