Psychosocial Support and Early Help

Psychosocial Support and Early Help are both forms of one-to-one therapy. They focus on making you feel accepted, heard and understood. You are free to talk about whatever you want, which means that sessions can look very different from one young person to the next.

Early Help

Who could this be good for?

Young people who…

  • are aged 13-25
  • want to explore something specific, whether that be certain feelings, behaviours, relationships, or something else
  • don’t necessarily need a great deal of support but would like to go over some things
  • aren’t necessarily looking for long-term support

What does Early Help offer?

In Early Help, your worker is there to:

  • Listen to you in a non-judgemental environment
  • Clarify anything that you may be unsure about
  • Acknowledge your feelings and behaviours and help you to understand them
  • Suggest practical strategies on how to manage day-to-day life or things that you might be struggling with

The details:

Early Help typically comprises 6-8 sessions, which usually last around 1 hour each.

Psychosocial Support

Who could this be good for?

Young people who…

  • are aged 13-25

  • are looking for regular continued support over several months to dive deeper into the things that they want to talk about

What does Psychosocial Support offer?

Similarly to Early Help, your worker is there to:

  • Listen to you in a non-judgmental environment
  • Clarify anything that you may be unsure about
  • Acknowledge your feelings and behaviours and help you to understand them
  • Suggest practical strategies on how to manage day-to-day life or things that you might be struggling with
  • Guide you at a pace that is comfortable for you

The details

Psychosocial Support typically comprises 12-20 sessions, which usually last around 1 hour each. However, you and your worker may agree that fewer sessions are needed.
