Programs: Group Counselling
Group Counselling at PYS is an opportunity for a small group of young people who have experienced similar problems to get together with a group counsellor to talk about their experiences, get emotional support and work toward making changes in their lives. Group counselling, like individual counselling is private and confidential.
There are a number of groups currently being offered at Peterborough Youth Services. If you have an idea for a group that isn't listed here, send us your suggestions!
Young Adult Group
The Young Adult Group for people aged 15-18 who would like an opportunity to talk with others their own age about issues, problems and topics that are of interest or concern to them. The group is confidential and we talk about things that are important to people your age. We share difficulties, support each other, learn together, what it's like not to have everything in your life be perfect, and how to handle it better. We can help if you're feeling "stressed out", overloaded, unsure of who you can trust to talk to.
We don't have all the answers but we can help if you need a safe place to talk where people won't judge you. Where you're accepted for who you are. It helps some of us if we can help somebody else. It's called "giving back" and we do that because someone was there for us when we needed it. You're not the only person who can't get along with your parents, has trouble at school, feel alone or who has friends who don't seem to understand. This group can help and it's nice to meet some new people.
