At OTR we offer a wide range of one-to-one therapies for 11-18 year olds. So whatever you’ve got going on, and however you want to work through it, we have something for you.
Please note that our one-to-one therapies offer is slightly limited at the moment – we would normally offer a range of therapies including art therapy, drama therapy and counselling based outdoors. For now, you are able to sign up for one-to-one talking therapies (which will take place using a digital platform such as Zoom or Skype) or our online offer Pro Real, which you can read about below.
Our team of therapists come from a wide range of backgrounds and work in a variety of ways. They’ve all been chosen to work at OTR because whatever technique they have trained in, they will listen to what you say and won’t judge you.
Our therapy sessions can be a great way to explore and understand your thoughts, feelings and actions, approach the challenges you might be facing, and discover your strengths. You can focus on whatever you like; your therapist is there to help you find your own way forward. And if you feel like it’s not working, you can try someone or something else that we offer!
Please note! Interested in CBT? If you are aged 16+ you can access CBT via VitaMinds by using this link – this covers Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.
Talking therapy can be a great way to explore and understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, approach the challenges you might be facing, and discover your strengths.
You can talk about whatever you like; your therapist is there to help you find your own way forward. At OTR, you will be offered a session at the same time each week (with the same counsellor) for a period of six weeks.
ProReal is a computer-based way of supporting you. It uses a 3D environment, where you can place virtual people and objects in a 3D world. You can then make these characters talk to each other and act in meaningful ways.
ProReal can help especially if you struggle with talking, as you can use the software to help you explain what’s going on. ProReal can help you explore lots of things, including your feelings, relationships, and situational problems.
Not your thing / too long to wait?
While we try to offer the most diverse range of services possible here at OTR, we recognise that there’s a whole bunch of other awesome agencies and charities out there who can provide more specialist support than we’re able to. If you want some info or guidance on specific issues, here are some useful links to try.
