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.
