Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a confidential counselling service to pupils in schools with emotional, social or behavioural problems and to enable them to function more effectively in school or at home.

We believe:

  • Everyone, whatever their age, should have the opportunity to express their feelings and concerns.
  • Everyone has the right to be listened to in a non-judgemental way.
  • Everyone should have the opportunity to be assisted to improve troubled relationships, to come to terms with loss and other life changes and to discover their own intrinsic self worth.
  • Counselling provides time to share problems and concerns in a non-judgemental setting.
  • Counselling can provide the opportunity, in a confidential setting, to talk with the Counsellor in a way that could lead to the release of long-suppressed information that may be causing distress.
  • Counselling can help children and young people build positive self esteem and gain insight into developing more effective relationships.

We aim, therefore, to offer a continually improving service to increasing numbers of school children.
