PF Young Adults Service
PF Counselling recently launched a new extension to its service, specifically for young adults aged 18 to 25 years old. This is an exciting new venture for the PF and is funded for three years by the generous donation of a charitable trust.
The service runs on a Saturday and offers time-limited counselling of 12 sessions to young adult clients. The counselling may be extended by a further 12 sessions if appropriate, but it is not a long term service. The Counsellors who work with the Young Adults are all part of the team of experienced, professional counsellors who also work on a voluntary basis within the PF core service.
Requesting an Appointment
If you would like to access the PF Young Adults service, simply submit a Counselling Request form in the normal way, but make sure you indicate your interest and give us your date of birth.
Clients interested in the Young Adult service will be offered an Initial Appointment, usually during the week if possible. Their availability and applicability for the Saturday service would be discussed in full at this appointment.
There will usually be a short wait for an Initial Appointment, and then again before regular counselling can begin. However, we hope to be able to keep this as short as possible.
Counselling Outcomes Evaluation
As part of participating in counselling with the Young Adults service, clients will be asked to complete regular Outcomes Evaluation questionnaires. These can be useful to you and your counsellor in discussing your progress, and also help the PF to improve what we do.
