Introduction

Young Adult Using a Counselling Service I am going to write a short report about a local counselling service called Brooke which supports young adults with sexual health issues. Right to be respected When entering the sexual health clinic all young individuals are greeted and made to feel comfortable. There is a window that individuals can have affective communication one to one with a sexual health professional to explain why they have attended the clinic. The window is away from others and is made as confidential as possible. Once the problem has been addressed the young individual is then given a one to one with a councillor in the Brooke clinic. The one to one again is confidential between the individual and councillor and the councillor has to respect the wishes of the individual. The councillor gives advice and guidance to help young people make the right choices for them e.g. the councillor would give a young person who is sexually active different forms of contraception to choose from. ...read more.

Treated in a dignified way At the Brooke centre are treated with respect and communication occurs on a one to one basis. People are given choices and not told what to do, there personal views are listened to by the health professionals. All testing in done in a confidential way so the young adult's self-esteem remains intact. Allowed Privacy There are frosted windows so that people outside can't see people using the service and when entering the sexual health clinic privacy awaits young adults as soon as they walk in as the reception area is confidential so individuals feel confident when speaking about any problems they may have. When called to see a member of staff the support individuals receive is also in a room away from other young adults using the service. If a transmitted infection test is being conducted the individual has the privacy to take a urine test is the toilet facilities in the building away from others also. All information that has been taken from the young adult is kept on record at this service and isn't shared with anyone, even your GP if you wish not to do so. ...read more.

Conclusion

Communicating Using Preferred Communication and Language Everyone likes to feel comfortable when using a local service no matter what gender, ethnicity etc. Some people communicate different to others and this isn't a barrier to them access the service as they would be offered support to communicate their own way. This is why the individual would be given options and the service would then be prepared and ready to see the service user and be able to communicate their preferred way, this could mean getting an interpreter, signer etc. Supported to Meet Their Needs and Choices In this clinic environment there are so many choices that individuals may have no choice but to choose from e.g. different forms of contraception, pregnancy. All support needed is offered for young people at Brooke, a councillor helps young fragile individuals come up with a plan of what path they are taking in different circumstances and offer them a number of choices which they explain in detail to every individual the positive and negative sides of each choice. They then also take on board the individual's choice and try to support them to the best of their ability. ...read more.
