Westcountry Practice

Westcountry Practice is a child and young person’s center located in the heart of Shaftesbury, Dorset. It was formed in 2020 due to the need for a children’s center, where qualified professionals such as private tutors and child counselors could work with children in a purposed designed environment. Whilst many children and young person’s practitioners and services exist in North Dorset, they are often situated in office blocks that contain other businesses or are within centers that have adult clients as well. Neither is the best location for children and young people.

Catering to children and young people from 0-to 25 years old, Westcountry Practice is a purpose-designed education, child counseling, and well-being center. We ensure that all professionals that work as part of Westcountry Practice are qualified and pass all relevant police checks (Enhanced DBS) to work with children and young people.

No matter what children and young person’s service you are using, you and your child will enjoy coming here. Our practice is a friendly, warm and calm environment.

  • Comfortable waiting room for parents.
  • Safeguarding checks on all professionals.
  • Purpose designed environment for you and your child.
  • Next to large free carpark.
  • Guest Wi-Fi.
  • Various professional services.
