for young people aged 11-24





We are here to support young people with mental health issues.

Since 2015, S.M.I.L.E. Counselling has been honoured to support the children and young people of West Lothian with one to one individual counselling, supporting our local Secondary Schools, offering psychoeducation to groups within our community and promoting mental health awareness through bespoke training programmes.

In May 2024 we reached our milestone of supporting over 2000 young people with one to one counselling. As we continue to expand as a mental health organisation we are proud to call West Lothian our home.

“Words can not explain how grateful I am for all your help over the last few weeks. I honestly don’t know where I’d be without you + smiles help. I will forever be greatful!”

I have benefited massively from these sessions and feel ready to grow further on my own, using the knowledge I have gained from this service.”

Please consider supporting us in the crucial work we do with children and young people.

S.M.I.L.E. Counselling relies on financial contributions in order to offer counselling to young people in West Lothian.

S.M.I.L.E Counselling first became constituted on 15th June 2015. Since then the Board of Trustees have worked tirelessly to get the organisation to where it is today. Now we are an official Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation and have begun delivering counselling sessions to local young people. We aim to be able to deliver a bespoke outreach counselling service to young people when they need it most. Our primary goal is to help young people get to a good place in their lives where they feel Supported, Motivated, Inspired, Leading to self-determination and Empowered to make their own positive choices.
