360ᵒkids believes that emotional support is key to the success for young people making the transition to adulthood. Through our counselling program, young people identify and address barriers that are preventing or have prevented them from moving towards their goals.
Counselling is a wonderful tool to help young people move from the pain of the past towards a resilient future. Through this process the young people are provided with the message that we care through consistency and empathetic listening.
The program provides young people with a safe setting, independent from other aspects of their life, for them to contemplate where they are emotionally, cognitively and socially and where they want to go – and how to narrow that gap.
The counselling program is only available to young people and their families involved in 360ᵒkids’ programs.
