Emotional Wellbeing & Mental Health

Counselling and wellbeing support

We provide free confidential counselling and support to young people who may need help in coping with difficult personal, family and emotional problems. These services can currently be accessed through the Surrey CAMHS service.

We have a range of qualified counsellors and wellbeing practitioners delivering sessions in venues across Surrey. Every single practitioner goes through a process of interview, DBS checks and training before they start supporting young people. These staff are supported by experienced supervisors.

As well as providing a counselling support service to young people, Eikon manages the contract for counselling services delivered in local communities through our partners Learning Space, Relate West Surrey, Step by Step, YMCA East Surrey, East to West, The Matrix Trust and Leatherhead Youth Project. These are delivered as part of Mindsight Surrey CAMHS services.

Children’s Wellbeing Practitioners (CWP)

Eikon also has a team of Children and Wellbeing Practitioners (CWP) – 2 qualified and 2 trainees.

A Children and Wellbeing Practitioner (CWP) is a new role which has been developed and rolled out by the London and South East Children and Young People’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme (CYP IAPT).

The CWPs are trained over the course of a year to offer brief, focused, evidence-based interventions in the form of low-intensity support and guided self-help to young people who demonstrate mild/moderate:

  • Anxiety (primary and secondary school age)
  • Low mood (adolescents)
  • Common behavioural difficulties (working with parents for under 8s)
