Supporting children and families through counselling and play
Billingham-based ABC Counselling, Play Therapy & Family Solutions offers a vital service to local school children who need extra support to strengthen their emotional resilience and wellbeing.
Founded in March 2015, the group delivers counselling and play therapy to local schools across the areas of Billingham and Hartlepool North. A special ‘Transition Club’ allows the children to play and receive therapy in safe place with qualified staff, where they can interact with peers, and share their worries and concerns.
Tees Valley Community Foundation happily accepted an application for £1000 to purchase play, art and crafts materials for this transformational service, which runs twice a week and is currently helping 30 young people and families.
