Counselling for Young People


Affordable, accessible counselling Young People

 You may be struggling with the social aspects of school, such as making friends, or difficulties in your current friendship groups. You also may be having difficulties within your family. This can be with a grown-up, a brother or sister or other family member. You may feel lost, stuck, worried or sad. These and many other difficult emotions are useful guides to indicate counseling could be helpful.
