It's good to talk

Aberdeen's Take Time counselling service aims to:

* create a safe environment where children can explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviours;

* create a self-referral system which gives children options of where and when to meet;

* foster self-confidence;

* encourage self-awareness, problem solving skills and growth towards autonomy; and

* encourage open communication between the counsellor and staff andor parents, and between the child and parents andor staff, while respecting the confidences of each child.
