ACIS Youth Student

ACIS Youth Student Service

Established in 2019, our student service provides therapeutic counselling to young people making the transition from school to college, and to more mature students who may also require emotional and psychological support.

What we offer

  • For students of NESCOL and SRUC (Craibstone and Elmwood campuses)
  • Up to 8 counselling sessions on a weekly basis

“Therapy provides a safe and confidential space for you to talk to a trained professional about your issues and concerns. Your therapist will help you explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours so you can develop a better understanding of yourself and of others.”
