Northern Ireland Counselling Project

The Child Brain Injury Trust Northern Ireland counselling project in partnership with

Headway, the brain injury association.

Who is the counselling service for?

  • Parents and carers
  • Children and young adults with an ABI (13yrs and over)
  • Siblings of a young person with an ABI (13yrs and over)

This pilot service was initiated due to the identified need of families affected by childhood acquired brain injury within Northern Ireland and the current lack of specific counselling for those affected by childhood acquired brain injury across the region.

Individuals will be able to avail of four to six 50-minute counselling sessions (one session per week).  A referral can be made to a GP should additional counselling be requested.  Each person will be notified when their counselling can start.

The service is available to all registered Child Brain Injury Trust families within Northern Ireland and will currently be delivered virtually.

How do I access the service?

Once we receive your completed enquiry, we will direct it to one of our counsellors. The counsellor will contact you directly to make an initial appointment. This initial appointment is an opportunity for you to talk to the counsellor and make sure that the service is right for you. If you and the counsellor agree that the service meets your needs, they will agree appointments for you over a period of four to six weeks.
