School counselling service

The Caerphilly School Based Counselling Service have a team of eleven counsellors offering a counselling service for pupils in years four to six of primary school and all secondary schools.

  • You may feel upset or confused about something
  • You may feel things are getting you down

  • You may need to make an important decision about something at school or at home
  • You may want to change your behaviour
  • You may have problems with a relationship – perhaps parents, teacher, friends, girlfriend or boyfriend
  • You may have difficulty sleeping or concentrating on your work
