Local organisations providing counselling and or mentoring for young people:


We have a team of counsellors specifically trained to work one to one with primary age children, adolescents and young people who are struggling with their life experience.  We provide a supportive place at times of crisis where they can safely express themselves and be heard and understood. The process of counselling can support the young people in reflection, possible decision making and finding their own resources to cope with the challenges facing them.

Children and young people can be seen for counselling at the Centre in Cirencester. They may refer themselves or be referred by parents, GPs or other agencies concerned with the wellbeing of young people.

For further information contact the Centre on 01285 885 830.


In addition Cotswold Counselling has annual contracts to work in secondary schools in Gloucestershire and in the Royal Agricultural University.


Pupils and students are able to access counselling directly at the school through their teachers or school staff.


School Heads or staff interested in what Cotswold Counselling can offer their pupils should contact Zoë Wolton at the Centre in Cirencester.
