The practitioners at Youth Interventions have years of expertise in the field of counselling and psychology and we've taken this and developed a toolkit that's specifically aimed at helping young people develop positive coping strategies and change harmful behaviours.
Our approach is different.
We've carefully listened to what hasn't worked for young people, and used this to create a service that is collaborative and person centred. We use relational integrative techniques when working with young people, recognising that if we want to help them change behaviours, thought processes and how they internalise the world around them, we have to be fully present, engaging, creative, empathetic, yet boundaried and challenging in equal measures.
We offer one to one Positive Behavioural Change & Empowerment Programmes for young people, and work closely with schools and community groups to deliver psycho-educational Emotional and Substance Misuse workshops.
Our practitioners have a huge amount of first hand experience in working with young people who are dealing with a lot of the stuff that being young can bring. There's a reason that this time of life is called Storm and Stress.
We'll work collaboratively with your young person in a sensitive, relational and effective way, creating their own person centered recovery plan.
We can't change what has happened in your young person's life, but we can work alongside them to ensure it does not determine the rest of their life.
So what does this mean for you, the referral agent?
You can trust in our expertise and qualifications - you'll find out more in the About Us section.
You're working with life long learners! And as such we're strong on Research and Programme Development following the principles of evidence based practice.
You'll feel reassured by our practical and pragmatic approach. We bring a variety of lived experience to our craft, and we take a solution focused approach to our journey with the young person, empowering them to find the resources from within to work their way through anything that life throws at them.
You'll be comfortable when you meet us, and know that your young person is in safe hands. We are entirely person centred and relational and we use an integrative approach which means that we can be creative. Very important when working with young people!
