During these challenging times East Dunbartonshire Council have made provision for a telephone based counselling service for young people aged 10+.  A team of qualified, experienced counsellors are available to support young people who may benefit from using this service.  The helpline telephone number for our school is 0808 1963700 and is open Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm.  This helpline can be used for in the moment emotional support, de-escalation of problems or stress, signposting to appropriate organisations and onward referrals for Lifelink counselling.
