Time 4 Me Counselling Service


Time 4 Me is a Barnardo’s Counselling Service.  It works in over 50 schools in Northern Ireland.  Time 4 Me supports children, families and school when life gets tough.  Our Time 4 Me Counsellor is Mrs Julie Magowan and she will be in school every Thursday morning.

Time 4 Me helps with the things children face growing up which can affect their learning.  We support children and families coping with:

  • Bereavement
  • Changes in the family (e.g. divorce, illness, conflict)
  • Friendship problems
  • Bullying
  • Worries about school work or moving to ‘Big School’

If you think your child would benefit from counselling, please speak to Mrs Griffith, Mrs Berry (Link Teacher) or your child’s teacher.

Mrs Julie Magowan will be happy to chat about the service and how it can help.
