Youth counselling, judgment-free listening in a respect-filled environment
Being a teenager can be tough. Maybe you are feeling stressed out, depressed or you’re always angry and not sure why. Maybe you are struggling with what’s going on at home, at school or with what’s happening outside with your friends.
Our aim is to provide you a safe, non-judgmental space where you can reflect on what’s happening for you, gain a better understanding of yourself and others, and feel more empowered to make choices that support your overall wellbeing.
We can offer both individual and family counselling, which is free to you and your family if you are aged between 12 and 18 and live in the Penrith or Mt Druitt 2770 areas.
What happens next?
When you come to counselling for the first time, we understand this may be a big step. Our hope is that you will feel safe, supported, connected and empowered at all times.
Often young people come in by themselves or bring a parent or support person to the first appointment and then later, if they feel comfortable, can come by themselves. What’s important is that you feel safe and comfortable when you come in to see us.
At your first appointment, the counsellor will give you space to share what’s happening for you and will work with you to create a ‘next step’ counselling plan.
Parents, carers and siblings of young people can also access counselling. If you are a parent or caregiver supporting a young person, you can also access counselling support. Just let us know when you make an enquiry.
It’s easy to make an enquiry; just call (02) 9673 1211
