About Project

Dorset Mind Your Head offers a counselling service for young people who are aged between 11 and 17.  If you are 18 or over, you will be referred to Dorset Mind’s adult services for counselling.

When we receive your referral, we will contact you to book an online assessment, to confirm if we are the right service for you. After this, you will be offered weekly counselling sessions, for up to 6 weeks and each session will be 50 minutes. When the service is busy, there may be a waiting period before your counselling sessions begin.

We have face-to-face counselling in some locations but also offer online counselling sessions. Sessions are either run from a private and confidential space or on a secure online platform. You can discuss this during your online assessment.

Cost of counselling sessions

Our counselling service is self-funded and, for the service to continue, it is necessary to charge a fee.

The initial assessment session is free, following your initial assessment you will be signposted to the most appropriate service/counsellor.

  • Free Assessment (confidential) – CYP Team Leader
  • £15 per session – with a Qualified Counsellor doing additional training to work with Children and Young People (CYP)
  • £30 per session – with a Qualified CYP Counsellor

Payments for the sessions must be made in advance of the sessions and can be made by bank transfer, credit card or PayPal. We will send full details about how to make these payments after the initial assessment if you choose to have counselling sessions with us.
