Starting Out Getting started as a counsellor of children and young people can be challenging. For instance knowing exactly how to get an aggressive, misbehaving or scared child to open up and talk, is a skill that can take time to learn. We’ve put together some advice and information covering some of the topics that students or new counsellors might struggle with at first.
Counselling Skills Counsellors of children and young people are required to provide counselling for individuals with different characters, different problems, and of different ages. Here we share a collection of materials with advice and guidance on these necessary skills.
