Welcome to Nessie where we provide mental health support for children and young people.

How can we help you today?

How can we help you today?

Nessie is a not for profit, independent therapy organisation that focuses on helping children and young people (0 – 25 years) thrive. Our team are primarily arts therapists but we also have autism specialists,  family support workers, SENCOs and youth workers.

We specialise in working with children, young people and families who are currently not getting support. Sometimes this is because they are anxious about talking to a therapist, sometimes they have experienced trauma, sometimes they may be neurodivergent, or perhaps they prefer more flexible, creative approaches.

We support the mental health of children and young people in three ways:

Nessie provides easy, quick quality assured, affordable 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, Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and the surrounding counties. Parents can also reach out to us directly. Nessie is funded to provide free support in many areas and we provide bursaries to reduce the cost for direct support where there is a need. Together our therapists have over 200 years of experience. We welcome diversity and have specialist trauma, SEND and LGBTQ+ therapists within our team. We have excellent feedback from organisations and parents. Our long history of working relationships with local statutory and community partners means we can effectively signpost people to the best support in their area.

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