Counselling

Full Time Counselling Service

Counselling gives you a chance to talk/open up about what is bothering you with someone who is not connected with your family, friends or school. A counsellor won't tell you what to do, but will help you to make your own decisions. It can really help to talk sometimes; you may feel anxious and down but not know why. If you’re not sure whether counselling can help, come along anyway! If I can’t help, I’ll do my best to work with you to find someone who can. Whatever we discuss is confidential within the service, unless I believe that you, or someone else is being harmed or at risk of being harmed.
