Counselling Services for Young People

You are not alone, there are people ready and able to help

Life can sometimes be cruel and events, feelings and emotions can be overwhelming. We can all find ourselves struggling with issues and circumstances that seem never ending. It can affect your home life, your friendships and your schoolwork. It can make you feel helpless and wondering when you’ll ever feel ‘normal’ again.

It’s not easy to find someone to talk to about your feelings and anxieties. Someone you can trust to keep your secrets safe; someone separate from your school, family or friends; someone who can help you deal with your problems and support you without making you feel judged.

Way In would like to be there for you. We are here to listen, and to try to understand you and how you are feeling.

But you might be wondering if counselling is the right way to go. Here are some of the questions we get asked most often by young people and we hope you’ll find our answers helpful.

What is counselling?

Have you heard of the phrase “talking therapy”? Well counselling is talking therapy that involves a trained therapist listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues. Counselling provides a place where you will be listened to in confidence, taken seriously, respected and encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions.

How can counselling help me?

If you’re unhappy or confused, counselling may help you to understand the reasons why and help you think more clearly. Counselling lets you talk about yourself and how you are feeling. You can use counselling to help you to make decisions and make changes in your life so that you can get on at school or college or get on better with friends and family.

What sort of issues can I talk about with a counsellor?

Young people bring all kinds of issues to us but to give you some idea of the problems that our counsellors have helped with in the past, here are a few of the most common: Family problems, relationship problems, stress, anxiety, anger, school, drugs, bullying, bereavement, sexual or development concerns, low mood, self-esteem, self-harm etc. There’s nothing you can tell us that will shock us, and our conversations are completely confidential.

How do I know that the Way In counsellors are able to help me?

All our counsellors are carefully chosen and trained to work with young people. They are either fully qualified or in the final stages of training. They all receive supervision for their caseloads and abide by the code of ethics of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

How does Way In counselling work?

You will meet a counsellor for a first appointment and if you think that you’ll need further sessions we’ll arrange additional weekly appointments with you. Counselling sessions are 50 minutes long and take place at the same time and day each week. They can either be in person at our clinic in Kings Langley, or over the phone.

How do I make an appointment to see a counsellor?

You can make an appointment by telephone on 07307 199625, or via email if you’d prefer.

Do I need to pay for counselling?

Charging is on a sliding scale based on your circumstances. When you make an enquiry your counsellor will discuss that with you.
