RAMH’s youth counselling services have been specifically designed for young people. We recognise that at times young people can be faced with any number of stressors in their lives. Our work involves helping young people to learn how to solve problems, build and maintain relationships, better manage their thoughts and feelings, and ease the stress they feel under.
Our counsellors are trained to a minimum of post graduate level and have extensive experience working with young people. We see young people within the school timetable, rotate appointments to best safeguard school work, and have a confidential room set aside. RAMH has worked with 11-18 year olds to develop services that they feel will benefit them and RAMH continuously monitors work with each individual young person to be sure it’s what they want and need.
Pupils tell us some of the benefits of having counsellors based in their schools are:
‘It’s easily accessible’
‘Takes less time out of the day’
‘Your parents don’t need to know you are going’
‘It can help you handle a change in your life.’
‘Staff are more specialised in talking to teenagers’

If you know a young person who you think would benefit from the service you can contact us as above and we will take you through our referral process. Our school based appointments are arranged and communicated to young people with the minimum number of people knowing. We use school systems that allow us to arrange appointments with young people without identifying they are attending counselling. This means that other pupils and most teachers are not aware the young person is coming to see us. However, it is important that the young person is willing to attend a first appointment to see what it’s like for themselves.
