ESCAYP offer counselling & therapeutic play for children & young people aged 3-21 years.

ESCAYP is available for children and young people offering a supportive empathic environment in which they feel secure and safe, therefore enabling them to explore their issues. We work alongside existing agencies where appropriate and with consent.

It is our intention to enable children and young people to explore their issues ‘off the record’ (with the exception of Safeguarding issues) We are completely independent and work closely with Children’s Centres, schools and other accessible venues to enable the best possible access to our service.

ESCAYP is fantastic and worry free
