Counselling for kids

NLP, CBT, Hypnotherapy & counselling therapists for children & teens

At NLP4Kids we help children and their families overcome a vast range of problems. Typically these fall into the mild mental health and wellbeing areas such as anxiety, confidence issues, habits and phobias though we can help with more serious problems such as self harming, eating disorders and learning difficulties too.

Our practitioners are all DBS checked, insured and have undertaken first aid and safeguarding training. They work in schools and in the community delivering sessions one to one with young people and in workshops too. In addition, our practitioners attend retraining and have access to ongoing professional development.

Whilst we are not counsellors or psychotherapists, our work can be similar to these methodologies. NLP (neuro linguistic programming) has some similarity to CBT too, but tends to work on a more emotional (rather than just cognitive) level.

There are many different elements to NLP. Some of it works with our internal thinking and the quality of those thoughts. Other aspects of NLP focus on communication, managing emotions and developing better responses to challenging situations.

Many of our practitioners have trained in additional therapies, such as hypnotherapy.

As well as working with children and teenagers, we also work with parents and teachers or others who have influence and intervention with young people. This could be via workshops or in one to one coaching sessions.

Whether you are struggling to support a stressed out child or are finding it a challenge to engage your teenager in conversation, our practitioners are here to support you and your family. We always make sure that we create a good “fit” between the practitioner and the child and our free consultation sessions go a long way to ensure you find someone who will help you to achieve rapid lasting change.
