Sometimes adults in the family may want the help of a professional to look at relationship issues that are affecting them or their children. At other times, parents, carers and other family can feel overwhelmed by a child or young person’s difﬁculties. They may want help to understand what is going on and how best to support the child to a better place.
There has also been a big surge in need among young people and young adults with emotional problems such as self harm, conduct and eating disorders, anxiety and depression. Sometimes children need their own therapy to work through underlying conflicts and worries.
