Counselling

Free confidential counselling for 11 to 25 year olds

Our counsellors are approachable, friendly and professional.

What is counselling?

Counselling is an opportunity to talk to someone in confidence, about anything that is worrying you. This could be about home life, school, college, relationships or just about how you are feeling about yourself. It is for when you have things going on in your life that you find hard to talk about people who are close to you.

Counselling is an appointment with the same counsellor every week (lasting 50 minutes), who will listen to you and help you explore how you are feeling. You decide if you would like counselling. We will usually offer you counselling for 6 weeks.

Our trained counsellors are friendly and welcoming and won’t make judgements about you or your problems. Your counsellor will never tell you what to do.

We will listen to you and ask you for your feedback on how we are helping you, giving you the opportunity to tell us if we aren’t getting it right.

We want to make sure our counselling service offers you help in the best way possible. If you want to change your counsellor for any reason, please tell us.

Most people find it very helpful just to have been listened to and have their concerns taken seriously.

Who can access the service?

We can offer appointments in both Fareham and Gosport for young people aged 11-25.
