Familyworks was established in 1999 to provide confidential counselling and training. We provide private counselling contracts to Primary Special Schools across Northern Ireland. We believe in working with you to agree a bespoke service for your school, going that extra mile to ensure the young people we engage with are fully supported.
We specialise in counselling children in the primary special schools and working with their parents to create solutions.
We will continue to provide our primary special school counselling to the schools who have asked us to.
Use the parent referral form to make contact with your child's counsellor.
Our appointments will be provided to parents via phone, video and instant messaging.
We'll find out what your child's concerns and issues are and begin to work through to solutions.
Anything from anxiety to behaviour to managing at home. We'll help you any way we can.
