Our Mental Health Programme Team offer a range of mental health services for schools and other settings including counselling, therapy, staff training and whole school approaches.

In addition to these services we also offer 1:1 and group reflective supervision for senior leaders and those involved in direct emotional and wellbeing support for children and young people.

By supporting professionals in this way, we are helping them to look after themselves in the vital role that they have, whilst promoting an organisational culture that fosters and maintains positive mental health.


“As a secondary school counsellor working with YMCA, it feels a very privileged role. I have the opportunity to help young people whom may be struggling in their teenage years offering them a safe and healthy environment to explore and share their difficulties and concerns. Although I work self-employed, I am not alone as there is a very supportive team readily available at YMCA, the staff can help with any simple questions to more difficult support. There is a great energy within the team and they have great vision and ambition on moving forward supporting young people with the help and support they need.Hayley
