    Counselling for young people

    Our counsellors are trained to listen with empathy to help clients deal with any negative thoughts.

Counselling for young people

​Counselling and support to promote emotional wellbeing in children and young people aged 10 years to 18 years (or 25 years for clients with a disability).

What is counselling?

 

Counselling provides an opportunity to talk about problems and feelings in a safe, confidential environment. It can help with:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • self-harm
  • eating disorders
  • bereavement
  • abuse
  • bullying
  • low self-esteem
  • relationship problems

and many other issues.

Our counsellors are trained to listen with empathy, to help clients deal with any negative thoughts and feelings and to provide guidance, enabling them to resolve problems and make positive changes.

Counsellors use a range of approaches when supporting clients, including person centred counselling, solution focused therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Accessing counselling

Counselling is currently available as a free service to young people in the local area.

 

If you are a young person, or the parent or carer of a young person aged 10 to 18 years old (or 25 years if you have a disability) and you live in the boroughs of Corby or Kettering, you can apply for counselling using the appropriate online self-referral form.

What happens after I am referred?

Initial assessment

Once the referral is received, you will be contacted to arrange an appointment for an initial assessment. The assessment lasts approximately 45 minutes and provides you with the opportunity to discuss the issues causing you concern and ask any questions you may have. It gives the counsellor an opportunity to find out more about you and determine whether counselling is likely to be effective or whether you would benefit from an alternative intervention or service.

Confidentiality

Youth Works is committed to maintaining high standards of confidentiality and generally, what is shared in a counselling session will remain confidential. However, there are exceptions to this rule. For example, if there are concerns that you are at risk of harm or have the intention to harm someone else, confidentiality will need to be broken.  Wherever possible, in these instances, you will be told what information is going to be shared and who it will be shared with.  

Counsellors keep notes on each client. These are brief, accurate, respectful and protected from unauthorised disclosure in compliance with the Data Protection Act. Client confidentiality is discussed in full during the first counselling session.

Professionals

If you are a professional wishing to refer a client for counselling, you will need to make a referral via the NHS Referral Management Centre.
