We at You and Me Counselling are seeing an increasing number of children who parents are struggling with alcohol abuse..
We are finding that parents can afford counselling for their children but they can't afford to get help for themselves. We can't fix the problem unless the parents are helped. We would like you to help us to provide Family Therapy sessions so we can help the children and their parents build a sustainable relationship.

What we'll deliver:

  • Enable a good relationship between parents and children
  • make the entire family unit stronger.
  • Repair broken trust
  • Parents to change their life

Why it's a great idea:

We will provide help and support that parents and children both need. Children will be able to have a better relationship with their parents and they won't feel anxious because they will have the love and support from their parents. It will also stop children getting into trouble in school and out of school and also it will allow them to concentrate on their education.

Alcohol causes Depression and Anxiety. It also can affect their long term memory.
Parents will have less chance of developing cancers of the Mouth, Breast, throat, liver, heart diseases, Brain damage and even a likelihood of strokes
It will benefit parents to become better parents and stop drinking alcohol. Parents will be able to take control of life. Parents will also be financially better off as they won't need to spend it on alcohol. Alcohol can cause parents to be abusive towards children. So we give them Family Therapy sessions they will help to manage their relationship.

Steps to get it done:

  • Providing a safe environment in which everyone can share their views
  • Giving support to Parents and Children
  • Offer Family Therapy Sessions
