Our Counselling and Wellbeing service provides a safe environment in which people can explore any issues which are causing concern or distress. Anyone in Aberdeen City can talk to a trained counsellor about anything they feel is relevant. This might include issues relating to: anxiety, bereavement, depression, domestic abuse, loneliness, low self-esteem, LGBTQI+ issues, pregnancy, relationship problems, self-harm, sexual abuse or substance use. Often talking about the concerns helps to recover the ability to cope. People may also discover strengths which will give them the confidence to change aspects of their lives.
Counselling staff also provide suicide prevention training such as safeTALK, in-house and to agencies and organisations.
