Children’s Therapies

  Arts Therapies

The arts therapies (Art, Drama, Music and Play), use creativity and imagination to improve mental health. The arts therapies are particularly helpful to those who prefer a less verbal approach. Children and young people naturally use creativity to explore, express, reflect and recover from difficult or challenging events. All Nessie therapists are registered with an accredited body (HCPC, UKCP, BACP or PTUK) and have been employed in line with Hertfordshire’s Safer Recruitment Policy.


Counselling offers children, young people and their parents a secure, confidential environment where they can verbally express and understand their feelings, thoughts and emotions. Nessie’s therapists are child centered and trained in CBT and Humanistic approaches which are useful for anxiety, low mood and relationship difficulties.

ASC / LD Specialist Therapists

Our autism and learning difficulties specialists work with children, young people and their families to support the communication, self-esteem and emotional regulation of people with neurodiversity.

Our ASC/LD team have lived experience and a range of skills including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT). They are also trained in emotional coaching, autism awareness, attachment theory, trauma and person-centred counselling skills. 

Diversity & LGBTQ+ 

Nessie welcomes diversity. We value difference and are proud to support those from a range of social and ethnic backgrounds, of different genders, sexual orientations, ages, religions and disabilities. We acknowledge experiences of racialised individuals and are neurodiverse affirmative.  Nessie’s team have lived experience which informs their work. 

Nessie works systemically supporting the child/young person; the family and the school.  We can provide training, supervision, consultation and clinical insight to help you and your setting.  Nessie tends to work in educational settings, supporting the child/young person to thrive. We are commissioned locally and settings / parents can buy us in directly.
