POINT young people's centre in Fishguard has now launched its professional counselling service for young people in partnership with Area 43.

This is available to all young people who live in or close to the north Pembrokeshire area who are between the ages of 10 and 25 years of age.

The counselling is provided by a qualified experienced counsellor with many years of experience of counselling young people.

Point can offer face to face counselling at the centre or digital counselling via video conferencing, email or text depending on what is preferred.

To find out more, and to refer yourself or a young person for counselling, visit www.pointypt.org.uk and click on the counselling at Point button.

The centre also runs a befriending/ mentoring service where young people can have support from an older member of the community who has been trained to become a mentor and can provide long term support with a young person's emotional and mental health and support with life skills, hobbies etc.
