“Counselling young people involves living with a perpetual sense of inadequacy, knowing that however good the session, many young people will go back to a world in which their parents are absent or don’t seem to care, a world full of unfairness to which young people must adapt at the same time as they’re adapting to all developmental changes going on in themselves. It’s tempting to reach for a manual, to cling to a set way of doing things, to follow teachings of one particular therapeutic modality. But with experience comes the confidence to be more adaptable to live with all the uncertainties, all the impingements.” Nick Luxmoore (2017)
