Firstly, a big thank you to everyone who donated to our Free Youth Counselling Service during the Christmas break from as far away as the US. We are so grateful for your kindness 🎁And a second thank you to the Galway Children and Young Peoples Services Committee for additional funding for Counselling in Athenry, Gort and Connemara. This will make a big difference 🙏And the result....we are delighted to extend Free Youth Counselling to new areas of Galway and to more young people 📣Due to Covid-19 our experienced, qualified psychotherapists are seeing young people online until we can safely return to face to face sessions. If you would like to book please contact Aisling on 📱 086 024 7763 or 📧 aisling.dermody@youthworkgalway.ie and remember you don't need a clinical (GP) referral. The service is open to young people in Galway City and County aged between 12 and 21 years.
