What’s involved?
Meeting with your counsellor will be private and last about 45 minutes. During your sessions you can talk about anything you want. Our counsellors are friendly and supportive and won’t judge you.

Your counsellor will not tell you what to do, but will listen and give you time and space and help you think things through for yourself.

The number of sessions may vary but they will usually be on the same day and time each week and always with the same counsellor. Some young people find they don’t need as many sessions, sometimes we can offer more sessions if needed.

“I had a lovely counsellor to help boost the highs and help cushion the lows to make sure that I am safe.”

“I was able to be completely honest with someone. Also helping me recognise the way I think and how it affects me.”
