all about us

Young people, its all about you!

We are a completely free service set up for 12-25 year olds who live in Dumfries and the surrounding areas. We are here to listen and help you find ways to work through difficult times. We are very approachable and we will never make any judgements about you. We have worked with all different types of people with many different stories and we are all trained professionally to really listen to you.

We offer counsellingsupport

drop insactivities and lots of information.

Our counsellors work with you at vital times in your life. Counselling is not offering advice or giving answers. It is about helping you in a safe and supportive environment to find your own answers. To enable you to live more fulfilling lives, have healthy relationships and build resilience to tackle the future.

We truly want to help you, see who you are and hear your stories. All of our counsellors undertake ongoing professional development training. They receive monthly supervision, follow Safeguarding policies and they follow to the COSCA and BACP standards (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.) This means you know we are trained and suitably qualified.​

Soul Soup envisions a future:

  • Where young people are mentally healthy and resilient. 

  • Where they are fully included in society and have the same chance to succeed.

  • Where suicide amongst young people, and stigma around mental health are a thing of the past.

We want to help ensure that all Children and

Young People in Dumfries and Galloway:

  • Are given respect and are valued within our society no matter who they are.

  • Are allowed to make their own decisions and have a say in what happens in their lives.

  • Are able to have lives that are rewarding and where they feel happy and safe.
