Emotional support and counselling

When you have been a victim of crime you may feel frightened, confused, anxious and isolated and don’t know where to turn to for help. 

At Embrace Child Victims of Support we specialise in giving emotional support and counselling to young people. We also support parents to help them help their children recover from the traumatic events and experiences that have devastated their lives. 

 Giving young people someone to talk to, to help them understand and work through their feelings and rebuild their confidence and self esteem, is at the heart of what we do.

We provide face-to-face emotional support and counselling within schools to children who’ve witnessed or have been victims of crime. 

 We can provide specialist cognitive behavioural therapy counselling for those children who are assessed as needing it. 

 We also provide emotional support to give young people a listening ear and to help them overcome their trauma and move on from their experiences. 

 Our emotional support is available by telephone and on-line to enable young people to access it no matter where they live in the UK.
