Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment.
We work closely with local colleges and Universities to provide work experience for trainee councillors and also have voluntary councillors who offer a service with Atal y Fro. Anyone wishing to access these services must already be working with any of the above services and be agreed this is the best service for them.
There councillors are trained to listen with empathy and can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings you have. Sometimes the term ‘counselling’ is used to refer to talking therapies in general but counselling is also a type of therapy in its own right. The counselling service is offered in conjunction with other Atal y Fro projects.
