Young People

'It is a happy talent to know how to play.'  Ralph Waldo Emerson  

Psychological services for young people aged 13 -17

The service is aimed at supporting young people individually at a time when many struggle with a variety of complex concerns including how they think and feel about the challenges of teenage years. Problems may arise with friends, family or school and college.  Feeling anxious, sad, confused or scared are common and it can be difficult to talk. Counselling can help by offering support  and a confidential space explore these concerns  (unless there is disclose that personal safety is at risk).  Therapy is time limited to 6 months reflecting the reality that young people's lives move fast and concerns need to be addressed quickly and effectively.  Longer term working can be, of course, discussed with the clinical team.

  • Time-limited psychodynamic counselling
