What is counselling
Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows you to talk about your problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment.
A counsellor is trained to listen with empathy, by putting themselves in your shoes. They can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings you have.

Some things you may want to discuss with a counsellor could include:
- sexual relationships
- family problems
- exam stress
- behavioural concerns
- child sexual exploitation.
