Counselling and Psychotherapy for Young People across Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Rutland "Helping young people realise their full potential"

Counselling Down Arrow

About Me

My name is Julie Griffin and for over 15 years I have worked across the UK and Europe helping young people with their mental health in order that they can realise their full potential. This is achieved by working together over time using a personalised approach. The therapy is by telephone, text messaging or video chat  proving very effective for young people as platforms they feel safe  and familiar with. Therapies are tailored to meet the needs of the individual allowing the young person to feel heard and valued, this supports them in making their own choices. My belief is that young people often need extra support at this stage of their lives, when there can be many changes occurring. They face many challenges both mentally and physically. Young people sometimes need to find this support outside of their family and friends network.
