respectful validation

Read more

“We offer respectful validation of young peoples thoughts and emotions which enable them to identify the initial causes of their feelings. We help young people put coping strategies into place. We usually begin with a short chat and walk with them as they take small steps to tackle their problems. Along the way, they build up positive strategies which empower and give them more confidence.”

Talking in confidence

Read more

“All patients have opportunity to talk in confidence about worrying thoughts, feelings or behaviour. They are offered a 1:1 session with their allocated nurse at least once per day. We try to give them a choice of time and location for these sessions. Some young people have particular times of the day where their mood is worse or where they have more headspace, and some are just not morning people!”
