Counselling Children & Young People needs practitioners to consider an additional set of skills and knowledge over and above that of counselling adults.

To support this, the NCS has a wealth of Good Practice Guidance for our members, which can be found in the Members' Area of the website.

We ask that Members who work with Children & Young People refer to the Competency Framework below.

We will also shortly be establishing a Register for those working with Children & Young People to support our members working in this area.
