We provide one to one counselling or play therapy to children and young people from 4 – 18 years. We work with children who have suffered a bereavement, domestic abuse or family separation and divorce. We often work with children who have complex loss which means the child may have experienced trauma or more than one kind of loss. After assessment each young person will be assigned a therapist that they see at the same time in the same place each week. This might be in school or outside school hours in a community venue near the young person’s home. This work tends to last between three to four months, and in some cases longer. You can self-refer to this service or schools and other professionals can refer a child. Please make sure you have the permission of the family before you refer a child and that the child knows about the referral too. The agreement of the child or young person is always needed for us to work with them.
Beyond the Horizon is currently part of the Birmingham and Solihull CCG Bereavement Pathway (COVID Response) providing therapy to bereaved children and young people in Birmingham.
