Child counsellor named a finalist in national award

Created on 06/04/2021 @ 10:56
A Newtown-based counsellor for children and young people has been named a finalist in a national award.

Salina Price of Beautiful Minds Therapy is a finalist in the Wales Children's Activities and Services 2021 Awards.

The awards are the only dedicated awarding body for the children’s activities sector in Wales and recognises the work undertaken by children’s clubs, groups and service providers for the benefit of children and families. 

"The children’s activities sector has been significantly impacted by closures throughout the last 12 months and despite this, the standard of applications was incredibly high with applicants demonstrating their resilience and adaptability to continue doing what they love," said an awards statement.

Beautiful Minds Therapy is both a finalist in the Health and Wellbeing category (sponsored by Daisy First Aid) and Independent of the Year (sponsored by Mes Enfants) along with several other businesses from all over Wales.

Beautiful Minds Therapy is a specialised counselling service that promotes the emotional wellbeing and mental health in children and young people.

Salina Price, who is the owner of the business, said “I am absolutely overwhelmed to be considered a finalist alongside so many incredible and deserving businesses at the Wales Children’s Activities and Services Awards 2021.

"This last year has been extremely challenging for our children and young people and we have continually needed to adapt our services to continue providing the high level of support needed, and at quite possibly one of the most impactive times. To receive such recognition for offering a service we love, has absolutely been the highlight of our year.”

The next stage in the process is for the expert judging panel, who bring a range of expertise and experience to the table, to select their winners. 

Founder of the awards, Kelly Jenkins, said “The 2020 event in January last year was a huge celebration and brought the sector together in Wales like never before.

"At this time, we had no idea what lay ahead just a few short months later. We are more determined than ever to put businesses under the spotlight and recognise their achievements over the last year. Each finalist has done an incredible job to get to this stage”. 

The winners will be revealed at a glistening black-tie ceremony due to take place this summer at The Village Hotel, Swansea providing government restrictions on events allow.
