Sometimes Young People and Children can experience times in their lives when things feel like they are becoming too difficult to cope with on their own. It can feel very overwhelming and stressful for young people and they may find they do not have the resources to best help with the situation they are in. Often friends and family provide a listening ear but often try to solve a young person’s problems when all they need is the time and space to do this for themselves and in a way that works best for them as individuals.
Often, they don’t even like to discuss their true thoughts and worries with people in their lives for fear of being judged or because they feel guilty for worrying about these things.
If you are a young person or there is a young person in your life who would like a safe and non-judgemental space to discuss any issues, no matter how small, or just a safe area to be able to openly discuss your thoughts and feelings, then counselling may be able to provide this for you.
