Posted by: liamg - Posted on:

Nessie is funded by Cambridgeshire & Peterborough County Council to support families of children and young people with emotional and mental health needs.

We support the positive mental health of children and young people, 0 – 25 years

The aim of our work is to help parents / carers in developing a positive and more  confident  approach to supporting their young person, whilst offering a chance to gain peer support, useful strategies and practical tools. 

Our areas of support include, but are not limited to:

  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement and Loss (including divorce and separation)
  • LGBTQ+ and Gender Questioning
  • School Avoidance
  • Self Harm
  • Managing Meltdowns

NESSie provides easy access to arts therapies, counselling, support and training so that children, young people and their families can thrive.  We provide support through partnering with local schools, county councils and community organisations within Hertfordshire and the surrounding counties. Parents can also reach out to us directly.

Together our therapists have over 200 years of experience. We welcome diversity and have specialist trauma, ASC and LGBTQ+ therapists within our team. We have excellent feedback from organisations and parents and a long history of working relationships with local statutory and community partners.

We are proud to offer qualified, regulated, child centered, flexible support.  Our Mental Health Leads Training is quality assured by the Department of Education.  

The following upcoming workshops are free to attend and are facilitated by Specialist Family Support Workers:
