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:

- Leaflet for Parents / Carers on School Counselling
- Leaflet for School Staff on School Counselling
- Referral form for the School Counselling Service
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 speak directly to school staff from your child’s school.
