WMRSASC – Children and Young Peoples Counselling

West Mercia Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre offer counselling to those aged 5-18 years old.

Through talking or creative play our specialist counsellors create a safe environment to enable the young person to voice their experiences and explore the impact it has had on them and their lives.  This is done in an age-appropriate way best suited to the young person; as we understand talking things through may be difficult for them. The young person will never be expected to talk about things they don’t want to. Our counsellors are not here to tell them what to do or judge, they are here to listen and let their voices be heard.

If you feel that counselling may help a young person, referrals can be made for all those living in Herefordshire or Worcestershire. If the young person is under the age of 14, we will need consent from either their parents or guardians. If they are 14 or older a self-referral can be accepted, or a guardian or professional can make the referral on their behalf with their consent.
