Who we are

Founded in 2007 and based in North London, GroOops Dyslexia Aware Counselling is a Charity (Reg. No: 1168098).  We are a team of professionals from a variety of backgrounds offering an array of services specifically specialising in addressing the emotional repercussions of dyslexia.

We understand:

  • Dyslexia can result in a variety of constitutional difficulties including feelings of anxiety, frustration, anger and depression.
  • An inherent low working memory can cause difficulties in remembering instructions, contributing to discussions and following procedures which can impact on a dyslexic person’s self-confidence and self-esteem.
  • It can take up huge amounts of energy just to keep going day to day and at times there are feelings of complete isolation, overwhelm and despair.

Our team:

Our qualified dyslexia aware counsellors, practitioners and mentors understand the emotional repercussions dyslexia can cause.  

They are specifically trained in our GroOops multi-disciplinary and psycho-educational approach.
