Counselling service for young people
Children and young people between 10 and 25 can access a counselling service in Bridgend County Borough. The main goal of counselling is to develop emotional resilience.
Counselling gives the opportunity to talk about things that concern you one to one with a qualified counsellor. Counsellors are trained to listen to people without judging and to help to sort out thoughts and feelings.
A key feature is that information discussed in the counselling session is treated ‘in confidence’ so you feel confident to discuss concerns openly and freely. This means information is only shared when you agree, or if a client seems at risk of serious harm to themselves or others. With the latter, they would need support from other agencies to keep them safe.
