If you are feeling sad, angry or confused about something, talking things through with someone can really help make sense of what is troubling you.


You can talk about anything - It might be exam worries, problems at home or school, bullying, boyfriend/girlfriend trouble, loss of a loved one. You won’t be told what to do, criticised or judged in any way. It is about helping you to help yourself.


Counselling is confidential. No one will know what you talk about unless you want them to or you disclose something that is unsafe or could put you in danger or harm you.  


If you are under 16 you will have to have the agreement of your parent or carer to attend counselling. You would be seen on your own for up to 50 minutes depending upon your emotional wellbeing.


Information for Parents/Carers


If your child is under 16 you will have to be in agreement for them to attend counselling and must accompany them for their initial session. If during a session your child is becoming too emotionally overwhelmed and I feel continuing with that session would not be beneficial to them or compromise their wellbeing it may be necessary to end that particular session early.


If you are unsure whether counselling would be beneficial for a young person please contact me to discuss.
