Resilience Framework CYP

Counselling Psychologist and ex-Youth Worker


I have just completed a piece of resilience research and am in that lovely phase where resilience is still new to my radar. I notice it everywhere…even on the L’Oreal advert! I first became interested in resilience as a youth worker when hearing Angie talk at a conference. I guess as a young person who experienced challenging times, my ears pricked up, as I could see many of the resilient moves that my dad had made, particularly around encouraging me to do well at school, and I have always seemed to create lots of supportive people in my life who I can count on. Since then, my professional fascination and curiosity grew!

When I started my training as a Counselling Psychologist, I focused my research on resilience to indulge my curiosity as to why some young people do better than others. Completing the resilience research has changed me as a psychological therapist. I appreciate the importance of working at a social, political and individual level, and see the professional responsibility that I have to challenge the way traditional “therapy” is being delivered.  The Resilience Framework gives me permission to work beyond traditional boundaries, to be flexible in my approach and through the challenging times within the work, maintain a sense of hope that working in this way cannot necessarily guarantee change yet hopefully it increases the likelihood.
