We understand how difficult it can be to see that your child or young person is unhappy, worried or upset about something.
At Cocoon Kids we support you in this.
Why choose us?
We are experienced at working therapeutically with children and young people from a diverse range of backgrounds, and different life experiences.
We use a child-led, person-centred approach to gently and sensitively explore whatever it is that has brought your child or young person to the sessions.
We use creative, play and talk-based therapeutic skills and resources, to help your child or young person carefully and safely explore their experiences.
We work with you as a family, to support you throughout.
