This service is for young people aged 11yrs up to the 18th birthday. All counselling sessions are 50 minutes face2face.
Counselling is 1-2-1 but can be in small groups at times. Children and young people must have a responsible adult to accompany them to and from the counselling sessions. Parents can wait in the Waiting Area or return at the end of the session. This will help ensure a smoother handing over at the beginning and end of each session.
The information young people share (and their process) is confidential unless a) they choose to reveal that information with others, or b) if there is an element of harm or risk to themselves, others or the building. Should this occur, the Counsellor will discuss the concern sensitively, outline the responsibility and duty of care in the way that data is shared with third parties.
