Aged 4 to 15 years

Butterflies is a well-established activity-based therapy service for young people aged 4 to 15 years experiencing bereavement (which can include murder, manslaughter and suicide) and loss (which can include divorce/ separation, domestic abuse, children looked after/ on the edge of care and parent in prison).

Butterflies draws on Listening Ear’s knowledge of different forms of counselling and translates this to be an age-appropriate service.
