If you are worried about your own alcohol or other drug use or someone else’s, then you may find it helpful to meet with a counsellor. Counselling is a safe way in which you can talk about what is going on for you with a professional in a confidential and non-judgemental way. Counselling is available for both adults and young people. It is important for you to know that whatever you talk about in counselling stays private.
A counsellor can help if you are:
- having problems with your own alcohol and other drug use
- worried about someone else’s use

Single session therapy is based around one session with a counsellor. It is particularly useful when there is a specific matter or problem that needs to be explored. Single session therapy involves:
- a questionnaire seeking information on your concerns
- a 90 minute face to face session
- a follow up phone call approximately two weeks later to reflect on changes made and to ask you about further support
