Child wellbeing practitioner

Who are the child wellbeing practitioners?

Child wellbeing practitioners work with children, young people, and their parents to help with mild to moderate problems with emotions, thoughts or behaviour.


Child Wellbeing Practitioner is sometimes shortened to CWP

What do child wellbeing practitioners help with?

  • anxiety (worries) and fears
  • low mood and depression
  • self-harm

What are my rights?

To make sure everyone can get our help if they need it, we will:

  • arrange for an interpreter if you or your family needs one
  • give you information in a way that you can understand it
  • discuss with you, the patient, who we will share your information with, and why

What happens next?

If we think this might be the right place for you, a child wellbeing practitioner will come up with a plan for your care that meets your needs.

You may be invited to a virtual webinar with the child wellbeing practitioners. This will try to give you practical ways to cope, and help you manage your difficulties using Low Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy based interventions, which will be explained fully at the webinar. You will have the opportunity to speak with a child wellbeing practitioner and work on a goal.

Confidentiality myths and facts

  • My parent or carer will find out everything that I tell you.
  • We don’t have to tell your parent or carer everything. You can talk to us on your own, and tell us what you’re happy for them to know.
  • If I tell you something bad, you’ll tell other services or teams.
  • We only share things that you tell us with people outside of our service if we’re really worried about your safety, or someone else’s. We will always try and talk to you first if this happens.
