Children and Young People Counselling

This is a confidential counselling service for young people who are unhappy, unsettled or worried because of conflict within the family or other family issues. This service is available to all young people, aged 8 - 18 years. Young people who access this service often feel angry, isolated and confused. This could be as a result of:

  • Parents separation or divorce, either recently or in the past.
  • Difficulty adjusting to living in a new family.
  • Any other family problems or changes.
  • Anxiety
  • Peer pressure
  • Bullying
  • Social media

Our young people's counsellors have all received specialist training to work with young people. They will listen and help you to work out what is the best way forward, without telling you what to do.

You can express how you feel in private; you will be listened to; you will have a chance to talk and work things out.

Everything you say will remain confidential . However in some circumstances confidentiality may be broken if:

  • You are going to harm yourself or someone else
  • Someone is harming you or someone else you have told us about

This will be explained to you in your first meeting.

Please call us on 0116 2543011
