Young People's Counselling

Many young people do not need counselling and are able to resolve emotional difficulties with the help of their family and friends.  However, for some who have particular difficulties counselling can offer important support for the individual's health and well being.

Counselling for young people can help with a range of personal issues. Counselling offers a safe, confidential place for young people to talk about issues, experiences or problems that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable to talk about with those closest to them. 

These experiences may exist within the home, the community, the workplace, the schools or higher education institutions. Ultimately these problems will be negatively impacting upon you and your relationships. 

Motivations to attend counselling are personal and can stem from a multitude of pressures within today's society. Young people today may face many potential difficulties that they may require support or navigation in which to understand them greater and empower them to move forward.
