COUNSELLING

If you need to talk about something that is upsetting you or making you unhappy; our trained, volunteer counsellors are here to listen. Person-centred counselling allows you to talk about what matters to you, in your own time and without pressure.

The counselling sessions are confidential, so this is your safe space to express your feelings and consider your options.

You can make a referral to our counselling team by emailing us at counselling.youthconcern@outlook.com

“I was homeless at the time, I didn’t like to say I had problems. I was getting depressed. It helped to cope with my emotions, talking to people, knowing I’m not on my own”
