Young People’s Project

We offer counselling and groupwork for 11-25 year olds who live within the City of Sunderland. Our service continues to adapt, and is influenced primarily by the opinions and needs of young people. We also offer workshops, training and volunteering opportunities.

Counselling Appointments

Counselling is offered in a variety of venues across the City of Sunderland including, The Life House, PopRecs, Connexions and some schools as well as online.

Appointments are confidential unless you tell us that you, or someone else is in an unsafe situation.  We may then have to share information to prevent someone from being harmed.  If we felt that we had to pass on information without your permission, we would always speak to you first about the need to do this and we would explain what would happen next.

If you would like to talk to somebody about counselling, you or somebody you trust, can text your name to 07507 330995 and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Alternatively, we can be contacted by email at: ypp@washingtonmind.org.uk or phone on: 0191 417 8043.

Please be aware that we will only be able to respond on Monday – Thursday 9am – 5pm and Fridays 9am – 3pm.
