This service, based at Newtownards, was set up in November 2003, and is provided to young people 16-25 yrs in North Down. There is a private counselling room in the office in West Street, Newtownards where the counsellor can meet with each young person. This can be on a weekly or fortnightly basis for an hour and for as long as the young person needs or wants the service. Consultation with other professionals working directly with the young people is also available. The young people with whom the service has worked to date come with complex needs and concerns including depression, anxiety, family, relationship problems, homelessness, disability, anger, leaving care, abuse, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts and feelings.
