At Worcester Therapy Group we have a team of mental health specialists with experience of working with adolescents presenting with a wide variety of challenging behaviours. Years of training enables our specialists to engage with the young person at their level and get to the heart of the issues they are grappling with, to help find new ways of managing their difficulties in a more productive manner.
Our service is keen to ensure the young person has a positive experience of the process, where they feel comfortable enough to open up and work through their problems. Our service is completely private and confidential and designed around the particular needs of the young person, at times and a schedule that suits them, so that it feels manageable throughout.
This specialist input can also be vital to parents and carers who are often desperate to understand their children’s behaviour or emotional problems. Thereby by working alongside this expertise carers can also be supported to help the young person on their journey to overcoming their issues.
