Counselling for teenagers and young people
Caroline Kelly - Accredited Counsellor
Registered and Accredited Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
An accredited, experienced and qualified counsellor for teenagers, young people and their families. I offer online scheduled video sessions or face to face therapy for those who live locally in the Cheltenham area.
I began my training as an adult therapist working within a substance misuse agency. It was here that I developed an understanding and passion around the importance of early intervention for teenagers and young people who present with mental health and well-being issues.
I have vast experience in a range of mental health conditions such as; anxiety and panic disorders, depression, low self esteem, obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders, self harm and suicidal feelings.
I am an integrative therapist with specialist training in delivering the best evidence based interventions for working with children, teenagers and young people. I have a calm and warm nature and I offer a unique approach that aims to empower young people to help them make positive change.
Evidence based interventions for anxiety and low mood
Empowering young people
These are short courses delivered over six to eight weeks specifically designed with the best evidence to help young people manage anxiety, worry or mood. After an initial assessment we will meet weekly for a video session where I will help you work towards empowerment and a more fulfilling life.
Get the most out of life
Counselling provides a safe, non judgemental place to explore difficulties that teenagers can face. With my experience of working with young people I am aware of the many challenges that can present and their need to feel heard. As an integrative counsellor I am able to adapt my approach to support individual needs to work through their issues with the aim of promoting a positive sense of self and well-being.
