Young People

Sometimes it can help to talk to someone outside your usual networks of family members or friends. Counselling can offer you a confidential space to talk about whatever is bothering you. Sometimes it can help to come for just a few sessions, and sometimes it might be useful to come for longer.

Counselling can help you gain a wider understanding of yourself, your worries and your situation in order to help you manage difficult thoughts, feelings or relationships more effectively.

You might not be sure if counselling would be helpful, or you have concerns about how confidential it would be. It is fine to talk these concerns through when we first meet, and ask any other questions that you might have about how counselling works. If you do not have your own income, you might need to talk with your parents/carers about the possibility of counselling sessions and you could show them the information on this website. It might also be possible to arrange some counselling sessions through your school, university, GP or other local services for young people.

The sorts of issues you might want to talk about include:

  • Stresses or conflict in your family/step-family
  • Worries about your future
  • Feeling low or depressed
  • Anxiety/ panic attacks
  • Lack of motivation
  • Suicidal thoughts or feelings
  • Self-harm
  • Lack of confidence and low self-esteem
  • Anxieties about sexual orientation
  • Relationship worries
  • Bereavement
  • Worries about a member of your family
  • Problems with food, alcohol or drugs

If you would like to come for an initial consultation without any commitment to any further sessions and to think about whether you would like to come for counselling, please do contact me on 01727 752147 or email
