Teenagers & Young Adults

Having spent much of my working life engaging with young people as a Youth Worker I have developed a special empathy with teenagers and young adults. Indeed it was spending time as a Learning Mentor in a secondary school that first inspired me to train as a professional counsellor; the complexities of young people’s developmental process bringing additional challenges to behavioural and emotional issues.

The key to counselling young people is to provide a non -threatening environment that is jargon free, friendly and treats them with respect at all times. Young people develop emotionally, physically and socially at very different paces in a relatively short number of years, expertise in recognising and dealing with these factors appropriately is crucial to effective counselling.

The difference between counselling adults and adolescents is significant, though less widely recognised than the difference between counselling adults and children. I consider this aspect of my work to be one that I am particularly passionate about and one that I thoroughly enjoy. I am a member of The BACP Children and Young People’s Division and have a current Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service certificate available for inspection.
