Individual therapy

The early years of adulthood (18ish-30ish) is often spoken of as ‘the best time in life.’ But what other age has more transition, more instability, and more uncertainty than this period?

Young Adult Counseling was created to meet the very real need of accompanying English speaking young adults in Geneva and Vaud through the rocky, dark, and challenging moments of their lives.

  • Loneliness,
  • Loss
  • Low self-esteem
  • Religion and spirituality
  • Romantic relationships
  • Self-harm
  • Sexuality
  • Stress

Counseling is based on a safe, positive, and confidential relationship between the client and counselor. Disclosure of information is only done in times where the counselor believes the client is a danger to him/herself or to others.

Forming a strong and trusting relationship between client and counselor is key to successful therapy. Together the client and counselor look closely at the issue at hand and dig deep for understanding. The counselor supports the client as he or she asks hard questions, works through challenges, and begins to implement changes.
