Children and Young People’s Counselling

This entry was last updated: 19th April, 2018

You might be experiencing problems at school, issues with your parents or generally not feeling like yourself.

Counselling lets you talk about how you feel, separate from school and home life and can help you get back to enjoying life.

What is Children and Young People’s Counselling?

Children and Young People’s Counselling is for any young person who’s having problems. Whether it’s depression and mental health concerns or issues with parents or people at school. Talking to a Relate Counsellor can help. Watch the video below, in which Relate Counsellor Graham explains what to expect in counselling.

What can I expect in counselling?

You can expect to be helped by a supportive and non-judgmental counsellor either at a local Relate Centre near your home, or you might see a counsellor in school.

You can be referred by a teacher, social worker, or you can ask to see a counsellor yourself – what you say is confidential, unless the counsellor is worried for your safety.
