Counselling for young people is available to provide supportive help for many reasons. It can provide understanding in person-centred therapy, a means of facilitating communication where behavioural issues are concerned or support in a family conflict situation. Counselling gives young people a secure, confidential environment where they can express and understand their feelings, thoughts and emotions.
What Counselling Offers Young People
The counselling relationship between a counsellor and child is known as 'joining', and offers the basic principles that apply to counselling relationships built with adults. This supportive service can be offered as a one-to-one session with the child, or in a family situation, which forms part of group counselling.
Counselling young people:
- Helps establish trust and understanding.
- Encourages the young person to tell their story, in a confidential and safe environment.
- Allows the young person to express him/herself, and to explore feelings and thoughts.
- Enables them to make informed choices.
- Helps the young person develop a positive attitude.
- Helps the young person develop and build confidence and self-esteem.
Time to Talk
Counselling does not provide young people with answers and solutions to their problems. What it does offer is an opportunity to explore feelings, thoughts and experiences, and to understand and discuss issues that may be on the young person's mind. Counselling is a supportive relationship built on trust, and is available for a young person to use to enable them to make progress and informed choices. Many young people experience difficulties at home, in school, with their peers and in understanding their feelings and emotions. Making counselling available to this age group provides many benefits for the individuals willing to explore this form of supportive therapy.
Counselling can help young people understand their thoughts, feelings and worries. It can provide an opportunity to discuss concerns they may have regarding their parents' divorce, and allows the young person to talk to someone who is completely impartial. Counsellors can also help children overcome bullying, come to terms with the death of someone they love, build Self Esteem or provide reassurance about other matters.
