So, your young person doesn’t want to go to counselling? You are faced with the challenge of convincing them it’s a good idea. At this point you’re probably feeling like it’s going to be as difficult as selling ice to an Eskimo. Your young person may be saying that they don’t want to talk to anyone, that there isn’t a problem or that it won’t help anyway. These are challenging mindsets to get through.
