Young People's Team
Our Young People's team has three qualified, experienced counsellors, Heidi Fettes, Pam Lowe, and Tricia Kiehlmann, all of whom have additional training for working with children and young people, and experience of counselling in Secondary Schools.
Currently we are working in Harris Academy seeing pupils at the request of School Guidance Staff, funded by Dundee City Council.
We also see young people at the Friary, by phone and online. Appointments can be requested by parents on behalf of young people under 16, and we operate a donation system for payment.
How can counselling help?
We provide a safe non-judgemental place to help you talk about what's going on in your life. Life can be messy and difficult. Some young people have to deal with experiences such as bereavement, loss, family and relationship difficulties, and bullying, while others may be dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, and stress.
We recognise that ups and downs are a normal part of life but sometimes help is needed to find a way through them. Counselling gives support and helps you find new ways of approaching problems. You will be helped to deal with issues better and make positive changes to improve your life.
