Who is counselling for?

Counselling is therapy to help you look at trauma from the past, an opportunity for you to talk about your worries which may include : 

  • your relationships
  • your childhood feelings, emotions or thoughts
  • your behaviour
  • past and present life events
  • situations you find difficult

Our counselling service is completely FREE for parents who are experiencing financial hardship. You will need to be referred to this service and it is only available to adults or young people over 16 years old.


How does it work?

Counselling provides a safe and confidential space for you to talk to a
trained professional about your issues and concerns. Your counsellor will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you can
develop a better understanding of yourself and of others.  A counsellor will not give you their opinions or advice or prescribe medication. They will help you find your own solutions – whether that’s making effective changes in your life or finding ways of coping with your problems. Your counsellor will be impartial but understanding. They will listen to you without judgment and will offer a safe space to explore life’s ups and downs. They may also offer information, but they won’t tell you what you should think or do.
