Where he started
When Wez’s parents spilt up, he was really upset and it seemed to affect every area of his life. School became unbearable; he found it difficult to concentrate; he couldn't talk to friends and started dropping out of lessons.
One of Wez's teachers referred him to Relate’s Young People's Counselling service – a safe space where young people can get the emotional support they need for any issue they might be facing.
Wez met with a counsellor once a week who listened to him and gave him the support he desperately needed. Wez found talking to a stranger difficult at first but slowly things started to change.
Where he is now
For the past two years, since Wez completed his counselling, he’s been part of a Relate support group that works with young people in similar circumstances.
