Counselling is an opportunity to talk to someone
In confidence, about anything that is worrying you . This could be about your home life, school, college, relationships or just about how you are feeling about yourself.
Counselling can be very helpful when lots of things are going on in your life. At times like that it can be hard to talk to people who are close to you.
Our Counsellors are friendly and welcoming and will not make judgements about you or your problems. Your Counsellor will never tell you what to do.
You decide if you would like counselling. We will usually offer you six weekly sessions of counselling.
The Moving on Project provides free confidential counselling to help you with any problem that may be worrying you such as:
Most people find it very helpful just to have been listened to and have their concerns taken seriously.
We will take some details from you and then arrange an initial assessment. Your initial assessment will be with one of our trained counsellors and is a chance for you to tell us about why you need counselling. Our counsellors are approachable, friendly and professional. We will listen to you and talk with you about our counselling service so you can decide if it would help you.
We can also tell you about other services that might be able to help you.
If you want to refer a young person , you need their permission to do so.
Counsellors are selected for many qualities in addition to their qualifications and experience . Each Counsellor has a mature personality, a lot of life experience and is non-judgemental.
All have regular clinical supervision and ongoing professional training throughout the year. All Counsellors are DBS checked at enhanced level.
We are committed to the BACP Ethical Framework for The Counselling Professions
All children and young people have an equal right to use our project and an equal right to respect
We believe you have a right to privacy so we offer a confidential service . Everything you tell us can remain confidential. This means we will won’t talk about any details you tell us to anyone outside of The Moving on Project unless there is a serious risk of harm to you or another person.
