Support for professionals

We provide support to professionals working with young people who have emotional and mental health difficulties. This support is designed to help you spot the signs of emotional distress in young people, to understand how this is affecting them and to manage their additional needs.

This support is available in individual consultations with one of our therapists, and in group support consultations for groups of colleagues.

Individual Support Consultations

Individual support consultations offer you the chance to receive one to one advice and guidance from one of our therapists. Consultations are a space for you to think about the young people you work with, whether they might be experiencing difficulties, and to discuss how you could best support them.

Good to know:

  • Consultation sessions are usually weekly and sometimes fortnightly or monthly
  • Sessions usually last approximately 50 minutes, but timings can be flexible
  • Sessions take place at our Centre, in schools and in other organisations for young people in the community

Group Support Consultations

Like individual support consultations, group support consultations are a space for you to discuss how to best support the young people you work with, together with your colleagues and a therapist from the Brent Centre. Group consultations are a good way for your staff team to think collectively about the needs of your organisation and the young people there.

Good to know:

  • Consultation sessions are usually weekly and sometimes fortnightly
  • Consultations are usually for groups of staff in similar positions or roles, such as heads of year or Youth Offending Service Officers
  • Sessions usually last approximately 60 minutes, but timings can be flexible
  • Sessions take place in schools and in other organisations for young people in the community
