At Eastbourne Wellbeing, we believe that every child and young person has the right to feel happy and carefree. 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 work in a holistic and flexible way, using 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
Low self-esteem
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)
