Counselling for adopted and looked after children and young people, for adults who were adopted when younger, and for adoptive parents
“This boy has been adopted. He feels happy”
For any counselling involving adoption, it is a requirement that the counsellor is trained in adoption as it is such a complex area. As a Barnardo’s Link Counsellor, I have this training, with further training in “Attachment Focused Counselling” also with Barnardo’s.
Adopted and looked after children
These children have all had the trauma of being separated from their birth parents, may have experienced other traumas before this move.
