Being a young person isn’t always what it is cracked up
to be. Life can become very stressful and tough, you may experience
difficulties that you feel unable to solve and find yourself feeling
and thinking in a way that is very concerning and distressing.
At YPCS we offer a safe and confidential environment for young
people who are ready to take the opportunity to look at their
difficulties and life experiences.
We do not give advice or a prescription for living, we aim to
help the young person in discovering their own solutions and ways
of coping so they gain the confidence in their own ability and
develop the skills that will aid and support them through this
difficult period and throughout their life. Within counselling
there is an opportunity to talk with somebody who will not judge
you, will be respectful of your view and will value what you say.
We do not judge or measure the difficulties a young person may
present with. The significance to us is the mere fact that a young
person is experiencing concern and distress of any kind and has
taken the initial step to contact our Service.
