Growing up is not easy and young people often face challenges that can be difficult to handle. It’s not always possible to find someone to talk to, and problems which are bottled up can seem to grow bigger and bigger.
Sharing your feelings through counselling can enable you to work through your problems, build your confidence and help you find ways to move forward with your life.
The types of problems you may encounter might include:
> Family problems
> Difficulties at school/college/university
> Feeling isolated
> Feeling unhappy or depressed
> Difficulties with boyfriends/girlfriends/relationship issues
> LGBT issues/sexual identity
> Loss of a parent/family member
> Cultural/religious issues
Counselling gives you a safe and confidential place to explore your feelings and be listened to, so you can start to build your future.
