How we can help you

We work with any child or young person, aged 5-18, struggling with an issue that is causing emotional distress and preventing them from being able to lead a normal, happy life (but who do not meet the criteria for help from a statutory service).

We see children and young people individually or in small groups, and we also offer support to parents/carers. Please see our Services page for more details of the types of therapies on offer.

Nature and Nurture can help children and young people cope with a wide range of difficulties arising from traumatic events as bereavement, family breakup, bullying, accidents, domestic violence, physical illness (of themselves or someone close to them), abuse (sexual, physical or emotional), disasters (natural or man-made), neglect and so on.

We also support children and young people with the following issues:
