Live Chat allows you to talk to a trained relationship counsellor in real time. Sessions usually last around 25 minutes, it's free and completely confidential. When you click the 'Start a Live Chat' button you'll be transferred to our Live Chat area. You will then be able to join a queue to be connected to a counsellor as soon as one becomes available.

If you feel you need further support after your initial live chat with a counsellor, then one of our other services (Message a Counsellor, webcam, telephone or face-to-face counselling) may be more appropriate for you. Please call 0300 100 1234 to discuss your options or use Find Your Nearest to discover your nearest Centre.
