The Source Young People's Charity
Our Counselling service specialises in the needs of young people and offers an opportunity to explore problems and difficulties in a confidential supportive way.
We accept referrals from young people and any agency, school or organisation working with young people. We provide counselling in schools, colleges and at our counselling rooms.
We are committed to delivering a high quality professional service to young people. All our counsellors work within the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) ethical framework and guidelines, follow our child protection policy and are independently supervised. Our team of Counsellors are either qualified or student Counsellors who are working towards qualifying. Our Counselling service works in consultation with CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service).
We initially help young people think through their issues such as mental health illnesses, bullying, relationships, parent and family problems, social anxieties, isolation, loss or bereavement. We offer a flexible approach that allows the young person to choose what feels right for them.
All our Counsellors have received a wide range of issue based training including domestic violence and abuse, self harm, autism and learning difficulties and anger management.
Our Counselling service helps young people to take more control of their lives and emotions, develop confidence, coping strategies, self-awareness, self-esteem and help understand what triggers their feelings. Where necessary we will refer on to more specialist support.
In 2019/2020 this service is funded by Donations from our Supporters.
