Family Action - Talking Point Plus

Family Action Talking Point Plus is an Emotional Health and Wellbeing Service which provides counselling and therapeutic support for anyone aged 13-19 (up to 25 with additional difficulties) living in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

 Our service is to support young people from Universal up to Tier 2. We can help them with the following:

  •  Stress, sadness, anger, worry and other difficult feelings
  •  Risk taking, self-harm and other behavioural issues
  •  Family relationship breakdown
  •  Difficulties engaging with school, college or work
  •  A recent traumatic life event

If a young person has entrenched long term issues from childhood, psychosis, suicide ideation, eating disorders, sexual abuse – we would look to external agencies to sign-post referrals on for longer term specialist support.

We are a brief intervention service offering six sessions. Additional sessions (no more than 12 sessions) will be authorised if any of the below is evident throughout working:

 Safeguarding – possible self harm or harm to others or significant increase in child’s vulnerability

 Risk – significant deterioration of mental health and wellbeing/ self harm/ risk of significant deterioration/ disruption to everyday life/ risk of undermining or weakening of ‘protective factors’

 Intensity – more time needed to help the child to address issues

 Complexity – more time needed to address range of complex issues

 Mid or end term disclosures which are required to be addressed imminently

 All of the above to be considered;

  •  while making a referral to appropriate alternative services for continued and more specialised support if necessary or;
  •  if additional time makes it possible to de-escalate problems and issues so a child no longer needs specialist support/intervention
