We appreciate that many parents have concerns about their son or daughter and have included the following information for parents leaflet which aims to describe you you can best support your teenager.  Counselling is a confidential activity and we know from experience that people speak more freely when their privacy is guaranteed. For that reason we only contact parents in the event of a safeguarding issue.  However if parents want to attend with other family members we recommend coming for Family Therapy.
