If you or someone you know is in danger of suicide, please seek help immediately. You should:

  • Call 999;
  • Call Lifeline on 0808 808 8000;
  • Use your local emergency department.

Don’t try to manage your or someone else’s suicidal thoughts on your own. Remember, thoughts about suicide are just that – thoughts. They won’t last forever and often they pass quickly. Many people who have had serious thoughts about suicide have said that they feel completely different only hours later.

East Belfast Community Counselling


028 9046 0489

East Belfast Community Counselling Centre was created to help fulfill a need in the local community, to provide a vitally-needed counselling service for adults who might otherwise be excluded because of finance or shortfall in service provision. Prior to the service being set up in 2010 there was no other dedicated counseling services in East Belfast, apart from counseling offered by local churches.

As a charity we believe that everyone should have access to high quality counselling irrespective of their ability to pay.
The counselling service is open to anyone regardless of whether they are male or female, whatever their sexual orientation, ethnic origin, culture or religion, so long as we feel their needs can be met.

The BRO funded Open Door Youth Counselling Project works with young people in the 11-18 age group, living in the Inner Neighbourhood Renewal Area of East Belfast.
