How We Can Help

By working with schools and parents, counsellors can help with understanding the problems facing pupils and encourage them to help apply solutions. Very often simple problems grow much bigger when people don’t talk to each other and other people fear the worst, so that talking is even harder. Adults can seem hard to reach and scary to talk to. Many young people begin to think of themselves as ‘naughty boys and girls’ and it is very difficult for them to understand their inhibition without help.

Many pupils have worked with our counsellors in one or more sessions, and learnt to fix things for themselves. Sometimes they ask for help, enabling the counsellor to act as a mediator
and bring staff and parents into a position of helping and understanding the problem.

We work in quiet rooms, so that the counsellor and the young person can concentrate and focus on positive changes.
