What is young people's counselling?
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 counsellor can help.
Watch the video below, in which our counsellor Graham explains what to expect in counselling.
What to expect
You can expect to be helped by a supportive and non-judgmental counsellor. They'll start off by undertaking an initial assessment to make sure Relate is a good fit for you.
You can be referred by your parent/guardian, a teacher, or you can ask to see a counsellor yourself – what you say is confidential unless the counsellor is worried about your safety. This service is provided for young people over the age of 11.
