Teen Counselling is an ‘adolescent friendly’ service and as such, our aim is to enable young people and their parents or carers deal with difficulties, within the context of the family.


We offer families/carers who access the service the time and space in which to work through or resolve the issues that contribute to their distress with the support of a counselling team.

Counselling Team 

We provide a professional non-judgemental and friendly service using highly trained and experienced Teen Counsellors to help Teens through troubled times.


Teen Counselling provides a number of Resources for Teens, Parents, Carers and Professionals and we also provide training courses using the Positive Systemic Practice model of Teen Counselling

Parents Plus Course

We had great fun at the final session of the last Parent Plus Course run in conjunction with An Cosan.  We were with Rob and Dan from Adventure Sports.  This is Dan’s Den, a construction he made himself in the Dublin mountains.

Our final Parenting Plus morning together was a practical experience of making time for yourself as a parent. We know being a  parent is challenging.  SO TAKE CARE TO SELF CARE.

Congratulations to all of our participants for graduating our eight weeks Parenting Plus Adolescent Programme.  Unfortunately some of our participants couldn’t join us for our survival experience!  However, we had a really great morning.  In spite of the weather we made FIRE!  and roasted marshmellows.  The main culinary delight was Rob’s recipe of banana filled with chocolate and roasted in tin foil on our fire.

Teen Counselling and Youth Services wish all of our parents and their children the very best for the future.

Thanks so much to Rob and Dan from Crosscare Adventure Sports Team for guiding us into the wilds and providing us with such a wonderful group experience!

After evaluation it expanded its catchment area to East Finglas and from 2008 referrals have been accepted from all of Finglas.  The centre is now located in Finglas Village and operates on a half time basis.
