Sometimes using an out-of-house service can prove to be more effective than using an in-house one.
It has, of course, got nothing to do with the quality of the service but everything to do with the perception of the young person.
We are a young person focussed organisation where young people can come and see a counsellor in complete confidence away from school and prying eyes. Our experience has been that this makes a considerable difference to whether young people want to attend.
TeenTalk are happy to receive referrals from partner organisations such a schools or GPs for young people where some early help short intervention person centred counselling can help.
Please be aware that we do not offer long term therapy solutions and are not an alternative for CAMHS for intensive or crisis support.
If you would like to refer a young person for our service please complete the online referral form. We will be in touch should we require any additional information from you, otherwise we will contact the young person directly to arrange appointments.
