PFYoungPeople will be part of the PF Counselling Service, but identifiably distinct within it. It will benefit from the leadership, management experience and ethos of the PF, whilst introducing a number of innovative factors, new to the PF:
- Providing a service on Saturdays. Opening on a Saturday will allow us to see more clients, and increase the utilisation of our premises significantly, at a marginal cost.
- Prioritising places for young people. Initially aimed at those aged 18-26, PFYoungPeople will impact positively on the PF waiting list, as well as attracting new young clients.
- Offering a time-limited service of 10 sessions per client. Recognising that young people often need fewer sessions to achieve meaningful change, and allowing more clients to be seen each year.
- Paying counsellors for their time and expertise. PFYoungPeople will offer new opportunities for qualified PF counsellors to develop their professional practice.
