Counselling young people – Is talking enough
I have been working with young people therapeutically for 3 decades and what I realised early in my career was that most struggled with counselling being just a talking therapy.
What’s the difference in counselling adults and young people?
Young people have specific needs when receiving therapy, this is a time in their lives that they are discovering their own individuality. At this age young people (those aged 11-19) enjoy new experiences ,being creative is often seen as a positive activity Abstract thought has developed and this can be incorporated in facilitating them to process their feelings and thoughts with using metaphors within the use of creative tools.
