The Y.I. team specialise in working with young people during times of emotional distress. We’re therapeutically and relationally trained and we help young people during periods of their lives when they feel like life is unmanageable.
Together we embark on a journey leading them to empowerment, change and acceptance.
When it feels like life is unmanageable, young people often respond by displaying negative or maladaptive coping behaviours. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. When we cry, it soothes our central nervous system and we get relief. Young people are really adaptive and find many different ways to find relief from emotional distress: self harm, gambling, negative relationships, isolation, masking, substance use, avoidance due to anxiety or low mood….the list goes on. The problems arise when these coping strategies actually cause them even more harm.
The Health and Wellbeing of our young people is Our Top Priority
