Emotional Support for Children And Young People

Find out more Make a referral

Escayp offers counselling and therapeutic play to children and 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.

Waiting Times

Escayp aims to place most Children and Young People with a counsellor within 12 - 24 weeks from receiving the referral.

Felt quite anxious and stressed waking up today, I did a workout this morning and feel much better. Listen to your body and your feelings, self care is an investment in you. Now for a good walk 👊

Don’t tell me I’m behind.
Don’t tell me I’ll be held back for ever.
Don’t tell me I need longer at school.
Don’t tell me I’m lost.

Tell me I can do it.
Tell me you’ll help me.
Tell me you believe in me.
Tell me we’ll do it together.

Yours sincerely,

The children.

Whilst today is aimed at promoting kindness to one another, this is also a reminder of the importance of being kind to yourself and #RandomActsOfKindnessDay is the perfect opportunity to check in with yourself and do something just for you.
