Young Adult Counselling
Coping with pressures in life as a young adult can be difficult and The Acorn Centre has expanded its services to offer general counselling for young people.
Finding someone to confide in about personal issues such as bullying, relationships and self-esteem can be even more of a challenge for young adults who fear friends and family will not understand.
What is young adult counselling?
The Acorn Centre offers a safe and supportive environment for young people to discuss their problems with a trained counsellor.
Young adults are welcome to discuss any issue that is concerning them, such as bullying, anxiety, self-injury, confidence, anger or bereavement – this list is not exhaustive.
What can I expect from young adult counselling?
Once you’ve made an appointment with the Centre, you will be seen by one of our trained counsellors (with or without your partner) who will ask you a few questions about what you hope to get out of the counselling. This is an initial assessment appointment and a counsellor will be assigned to you after this session.
You will then be able to discuss timings of future appointments and also the cost of counselling. Each session usually lasts up to one hour.
All of our counselling is strictly confidential and non-judgmental.
How can young adult counselling help me?
Having a safe and trusted environment to share your worries with a trained counsellor can help you to find solutions and feel supported.
We will give you time just for you where you can work at your own pace to discuss the problems that are affecting you.
We understand it can be difficult to find someone to listen to your concerns but The Acorn Centre offers a safe and confidential environment to discuss your feelings.
