Our Nightingale counsellors who work with young adults age 12-18 have extensive experience of working with this age group. They have the ability to connect and build trust quickly, which is essential to encourage the young person to open up emotionally for the first time to an adult.
This is a very specialised area of counselling as many young people feel vulnerable, especially if they are having difficulties with adults. Nightingales Young Adult counsellors use many different techniques to allow them to engage and to express their emotions and concerns.
We aim to ensure that every client feels safe in the knowledge that they have found a professional organisation that understands the challenges and concerns they face when they decide to seek assistance. When you contact Nightingale we will respond immediately to all enquiries and can guarantee an appointment within 48 hours. Contact us on 0141 353 9373, Email us or complete our online Enquiry Form.
"I am a 14 year old boy. I found my time with Nightingale’s young adult counsellor really helpful and productive. She was very easy to talk to, patient and happy to talk about whatever I wanted. She offered different perspectives which helped me understand the roots of the problem that I was facing. She gave me lots of support and useful suggestions. I also found the experience very interesting."
