Welcome to Beyond the Horizon!

We help children, young people and families who have been affected by loss, bereavement, divorce or separation and domestic abuse. If you have faced any of these difficulties we offer support to help you work through your challenges to achieve emotional wellbeing and hope for a healthy future. Our counsellors and play therapists help children and young people come to terms with their losses and give them tools to cope with changes in their lives.

What we do

We work with 4-18 year olds who live in Birmingham or attend a Birmingham school. We offer family support sessions in or near the home to families when a loved one has recently died. We visit children in schools and community locations to provide one to one therapy for children who need counselling or play therapy. We deliver parenting support sessions to individual parents.  We run group courses for parents and carers who want help to re-establish their relationship with their child after a loss.
