What we do.

Here at Next Step Wellbeing we know children can find it hard to verbalise and define their thoughts, feelings and problems that they maybe encountering. How they then communicate their inner world to those around them is via their external behaviour. This behaviour can manifest itself in a variety of ways such as withdrawal, sensitivity to situations and regression. Most commonly it can be experienced as disruptive behaviour for example; temper tantrums, bossiness, frequent arguments, control, moodiness, irritability, and physical aggression to others.


Our service gives children the time and space to explore their internal world it can help them to understand their own struggles, thoughts, feelings and behaviours. It can also help them to work through their emotional and psychological developmental milestones. Relearning these stages heightens their awareness of the self and their own belief systems. As part of the therapeutic process Next Step Counselling uses a diverse range of creative tools and play. Using these tools enables a clear channel of communication to emerge allowing the child to naturally express, explore and convey themselves by using an avenue that is in essence their preferred way of relating.


We also work with parents and staff members.

How does it work?

Depending on what is already in place within an organisation, clients can select the appropriate support, training, products and services to complement existing initiatives and resources.
