Escayp works with many different schools, professionals and organisations.
Here is some information about our 1 to 1 counselling / therapeutic play service:
All of our counsellors are qualified to a minimum of:
- Diploma Level and hold, or are working towards, a certificate in Counselling Children and Adolescents.
- Safeguarding Level 1 Certificate.
- Membership / accredited membership of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) or equivalent Governing Body.
We offer a 1:1 counselling and therapeutic play service to children and young people from age 3 to 21. The service is chargeable for most of the work undertaken. Where there are likely to be regular referrals, a 12-month Service Agreement would be set up at no cost to the school / agency.
We would carry out the work in a suitable / confidential room, ideally within your premises. We usually recommend a block of 8/10 sessions. If it is felt by the child, counsellor or referrer that these are not all needed then counselling would be brought to an end in a way that leaves the door open for further contact if needed. There isn’t normally a waiting list for the service to, schools, professionals and organisation and we would endeavour to have a counsellor allocated within 2 weeks of receiving the referral.
