YMCA East Surrey’s Children’s Wellbeing Practitioner (CWP) team are trained to support children, young people and families to build their emotional understanding, wellbeing and resilience.

CWP’s are part of YMCA East Surrey’s wider Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health service (working alongside Heads Together counselling service) and work within the local community, GP’s & schools.

CWP’s use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) principles to normalize emotions and develop helpful patterns of thought, feeling & behaviour via guided self-help interventions.

What can we help with?

What about the cost?

Our service is free to all clients.

What about confidentiality?

We know how important it is for young people to feel confident they can trust counsellors and therapists. Nothing you tell us will be passed on to anyone outside the agency or our NHS partners, without your consent, unless we think that you or any other person will be in danger. Even then, we would try to talk to you about it first.

How do I book an appointment?

You can phone YMCA East Surrey’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Team on 01737 378481. In some circumstances, we may direct you to seek a referral from your GP or another professional.
