Social Prescribing

CYCA is leading on an innovative Social Prescribing Project with a number of Llanelli GP surgeries. The project is to support children presenting with emotional distress who cannot access CAMHS, the project can support young people in handling emotions such as anger and depression which can impact their progress within school, the project works holistically with the whole family by providing access to a range of support by our specialist team.

In order for a referral, the family needs to seek an appointment with the GP and the GP will refer to us, families need to contact their GPs directly.

The GP surgeries currently providing referral scheme to CYCA are:

  • Ashgrove Medical Centre
  • Avenue Villa
  • Burry Port
  • Llangennech Surgery
  • Llwynhendy Health Centre
  • Ty Elli Group Practice
  • Fairfield

At CYCA we have qualified counsellors that are experienced at working with children, young people and their families. We know that every person has their own issues, and their own way of dealing with things and we adapt our way of working to support each person’s needs.

We pride ourselves in working systemically with all family members as we know that counselling offered in isolation, without supporting the whole family unit, is rarely as impactful. CYCA have taken referrals for 20 children under this programme, but in essence that has enabled us to work with 46 extended family members.

We always anticipate that the presenting issues in the first few sessions will be different to the emerging issues that are disclosed during the sessions. Therefore, our service is open ended as we fully understand that the presenting issues can not resolved in six weeks. This is why we are unique; we continue to support each family to ensure our work has a long-term impact – we never give up on a family.
