Young People’s Counselling

We can help young people with:

    • Identity issues.
    • Panic and anxiety attacks and stress.
    • Feeling angry and ‘out of control’ with their anger.
    • Dealing with the after-effects of parents splitting up.
    • Experiencing bullying.
    • Self-harm.
    • Recovery from abuse or other kinds of trauma.
    • Anxiety and sexuality.
    • Feeling depressed and suicidal.

….and lots of other issues – some young people just need to talk.

What we do:

    • Help you to take control of your life.
    • Help you talk and think through and make sense of what’s going on.
    • Respect you.
    • Value you.
    • Don’t judge you.
