Family Counselling Trust (FCT)

The Family Counselling Trust offers a grant-supported service for children, adolescents and families where there are emotional, behavioural or other mental health problems. It is the aim of the Family Counselling Trust to provide families with concerns about their children’s behaviour, emotions and family relationships with information, advice and guidance on what counselling can achieve, what services are available and to commission counselling as appropriate in consultation with the family. The NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) provides an excellent and vitally needed service across Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset. Some cases do not yet meet the criteria for CAMHS services but can benefit from the early provision of counselling.
