Child, Adolescent and Youth Mental Health and Well-Being

Rest in Essence’s multi-disciplinary team is focussed on working with young people and the important adults in their lives. Prevention of escalating distress and early intervention to improve coping and resilience are central to our approach.

Rest in Essence’s clinical environment is a unique, warm, and welcoming space that young people respond very well to. They feel comfortable in this setting which compliments our team’s gentle and effective approach to counselling/therapy.

We specialise in:

  • Family Support + Psychoeducation
  • Emotional regulation
  • Mental health assessment
  • Practical, individual support and care planning
  • Strategies for the family to assist with coping with distress
  • Joint sessions with relevant family members
  • Liaising with schools
  • Reports for GPs and other medical practitioners
  • Supporting parents/carers even if the young person is unwilling to attend the session


We do not require a GP referral or a Mental Health Care Plan
