A wellbeing service for children and young people

Research tells us that around one in four people will experience a mental health difficulty at some point in their life. Over half of adult mental health problems start before the age of 14; 75% by the age of 18.

At Eastbourne Wellbeing, we believe that every child and young person has the right to feel happy and carefree; equally, we understand that sometimes this isn't easy to achieve. We know that parents and carers can struggle to know where to go to ask for help with their child or adolescent's mental health difficulties, and other common issues which affect their emotional wellbeing.

 

All of the therapists on the team offer a calm, friendly and non-judgemental approach, which enables us to work with children and young people to understand their personal obstacles. We then work together to explore the steps they could take to overcome them, using a personalised wellbeing plan.

We use evidence-based counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approaches to help children and young people to improve their mental health and to overcome the following:

  • Low mood and depression

  • Anxiety

  • Low self-esteem

  • Phobias

  • Separation anxiety

  • Social anxiety

  • School avoidance

  • Sleep difficulties

  • Poor eating patterns

  • Anger / impulse control

We also offer:

  • Management of exam-related stress and anxiety

  • Careers guidance

  • Advice about applying to university (UCAS) and the personal statement writing process

  • Signposting/ advice for young people who are not in education employment or training (NEET)

Please note that we always recommend you visit your GP initially, to discuss your concerns and to try to access help and advice through the NHS. For concerns about school-based difficulties, please speak to your child's teacher or SENCo in the first instance, as they will be able to offer advice and guidance.
