Aberdeenshire School Counselling Service provides a safe and confidential space for young people to talk to a trained professional about issues and concerns they face. The counsellor will help the young person explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviours so they can develop a better understanding of themselves and of others. A counsellor will not give young people their opinions or offer advice. They will help the young person find their own solutions – whether that’s making effective changes in their life and relationships or finding ways of coping with their problems. Further information can be found:
- Counselling Service Information for Young People
- Leaflet for Parents / Carers on School Counselling
- Leaflet for School Staff on School Counselling
Please note only Aberdeenshire Council school staff can refer a young person to counselling. However if you feel your child would benefit from this service please contact our school to discuss this with both your child’s class teacher and Head Teacher.
