Child and Adolescent MENTAL HEALTH

Is Online Counselling suitable for my child?

Millions of people do not have access to professional help when they need it. This can be for a variety of reasons, but for children and young people, this is often due to the existing demands on available Local Authority and NHS resources. This can result in long waiting lists and extremely high threshold levels that need to be met prior to accessing the help that they need.

The Management Team of Fresh Start Direct Ltd have many years experience working with some of the most vulnerable children and young people in the UK. We realised that many of them could be helped through Counselling or Therapy, but busy parents and busy Local Authorities and NHS struggled to find the resources to make this available when most needed.

We set up this service to provide qualified, professionally registered Counsellors who have experience in working with children and young people who are experiencing difficulties in their lives at home, at school or in social situations.

Fresh Start Counselling is an Organisational Member of the BACP.

The advantages of online Counselling include

  • It’s quick to set up and access – no waiting list
  • No delays, in getting help – the Counsellor can be anywhere in the country, it doesn’t rely on local appointments
  • No travelling to a location away from your home
  • We are available from 08:00am to 08:00pm 7days a week
  • No strangers visiting your home
  • An easy way for young people to engage with a Counsellor in the same way they chat with their friends – using their phone, tablet or PC
  • No time spent waiting around for appointments
  • No stigma – they don’t have to leave the house or be observed by others leaving the school context
  • Private and Confidential, using finance grade encryption and security, all conversations are safe from eavesdropping
  • Cost effective – regular therapy sessions can cost anything up to £120, but using our online system it’s only £55 per session including VAT.

How much does it cost?

Sessions are £55 each, and last approximately 50 minutes.

How do I get started?

Simply fill in the form below and we will set up a FREE online consultation with you and your child. This will not be with a counsellor but with one of our friendly and helpful team members who can answer your questions. It’s all done online, so no one comes to your home. We talk through the issues your child faces; it helps if they are there too so they can be involved and suggest how we can help. If we feel we are not the right service for your child, then we will recommend an alternative service that you can use. There is no charge for this.

If we all agree that online Counselling will benefit your child, we then set up an initial block of six sessions. This may be enough, however there is no limit to the number of sessions your child can have, we can continue as long as is needed.

Once we have received your initial payment, which is easily and flexibly made online, we will match a suitable counsellor to your child’s needs and get the confidential sessions started.

It’s as straightforward as that.
