Children’s Counselling Services

Young people may need help with a wide range of issues at different points in their lives. Parents and carers may also need help and advice to deal with behavioural or other problems their child is experiencing. Parents, carers and young people can receive direct support through Young Anxious Minds.

When is the transition from CAMS to adult services?

The age children and young people move to another service can differ. For example, some transition at 16, others at 18 or older. The transition between services can be a scary time for young people as the teams they know and are used to working with change. However, you will still be with Anxious Minds and part of our amazing community.

This service will support Young People from the age of 14+
