Our Telephone and Webchat counselling service is available to young people aged 25 years old and under.

Counselling sessions could help with issues such as:
- A bereavement (death) or relationship breakdown
- Stress / anxiety
- Exploring issues like your sexual identity / gender identity
- Dealing with issues that are stopping you achieving your ambitions
- Dealing with feelings of depression or sadness
- Understanding yourself and your problems better
- Feeling more confident
You will usually be offered up to eight counselling sessions that last around 50 minutes each.
