Counselling

COVID-19 UPDATE

In our life, we can have moments when it is difficult to keep up! We can feel overwhelmed and anxious.

Aberdeen Foyer’s counselling service continues to provide support for young people and adults. Our counsellors are providing a hybrid approach to counselling offering face-to-face sessions as well as phone/online appointments.

If you wish to refer yourself or somebody you work with to our counselling service, please use the link below. We accept referrals from Young People from the age 16-24 from Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire and adults above 24 years, who reside in Aberdeen City.

Counselling

Our Counselling service provide a safe, non-judgemental environment to enable you to explore issues which may be causing you distress. We will work with you on individual one to one sessions or a group therapy.

If you live in Aberdeen City (16 year old and above) or Aberdeenshire (up to age 24), you can refer yourself to our Counselling service, or you can be referred to us by any professional you are working with.

Our counsellors are trained to work with a range of issues relating to anxiety and depression, loneliness, low self-esteem, relationships, self-harm, bereavement, sexual, physical and emotional abuse, gender identity and substance abuse.

Our counsellors will listen to your views and experience and will work with you to determine the best type of counselling for you.

How we work

Once your referral is accepted, you will join our waiting list. Our coordinator will contact you when space becomes available to arrange an initial meeting after which a counsellor will be allocated. It is difficult to provide a timeline as the wait changes, but it can take up to 4 months to be contacted.
