At YMCA WA we are strongly committed to building healthy happy communities. If you or someone you know needs counselling to resolve issues, or for any other reason, you are not alone, YCounselling is here to help and support. 

Who are we for?

We provide counselling for young people aged 12 to 25 and/or their families. We also provide group programs. We can help young people to resolve crisis, reduce stress and make goals to improve wellbeing.

What can we help with?

YCounselling is a safe space to explore and to seek support for:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Stress
  • Conflict
  • Self harm and suicidal feelings or thoughts 
  • Sexuality
  • Grief and loss
  • Sexual abuse
  • Relationship problems
  • Body image or weight concerns, eating disorders 
  • Sexual orientation or gender identity (LGBTI)
  • Other issues

We are a short to long term counselling service. The duration of counselling will be determined jointly with you and the counsellor. We are a low cost service, the first counselling appointment is no charge. After this there is a fee of $25 per session that can be negotiated or waived in instances where you are not able to pay.
