Community CAMHS Counselling Service
The service is staffed by qualified counsellors who provide therapy over an agreed period of time for children and young people who are reacting to changes in their lives. Common themes are issues with relationships, bullying, loss and traumatic events.
The counselling appointments are on an individual basis. If any one wishes to access counselling for a child or young person a referral is needed from someone in the health, education or social services fields via the established referral pathways. We can also provide training, and consultancy for other organisations.
Community CAMHS Counselling adheres to City of Sunderland Council safeguarding policies and procedures.
Counselling is provided at Community CAMHS bases in Southwick, Hendon and Washington.
The Community CAMHS Counselling service is available from 9.00 to 5.00 from Monday to Friday. We may be able to offer some appointments slightly earlier or later than these times if necessary.
