Embrace (Child Victims of Crime) offer CBT and therapeutic counselling for young people who have been victims of, or witnessed domestic abuse or sexual violence and those who may be showing low-level potentially harmful behaviours as a result of what they have been exposed to. It can be delivered at locations across the county through a framework of checked and accredited therapists. The young person must be aged 13-19 (or up to 24 with special needs) and safe from the offender and willing to engage.
