Text-based counselling and workshops for 11-25 year olds in Croydon, Merton & Sutton.

I really feel the care I received here saved my life. I have benefitted and grown so much in my time here, thanks to my counsellor.
My counsellor has been a huge help to my life and I can't begin to put into words how grateful I am for her over these last 12 weeks.
I feel comfortable coming to Off The Record, it is very relaxing. I feel light after each appointment. I feel better about myself.
If it hadn't been for Off the Record I don't think I could've made it through. Now I'm in place I couldn't have imagined back then.
Definitely the best sessions I have had. I cannot thank you enough for your work and dedication to helping others. Keep doing what you are doing.
Off the record has made a big difference in me.... I'm a young carer and am getting more confidence because of them! :)
I wouldn't have got to University without the support from off the record! They helped me stay strong through tough times!
I felt like I could speak to my counsellor about almost anything, with her warmth, calm, patience, understanding and support.
I am more happy and open person I believe in myself. Coming to Off The Record has helped me to learn to trust other people.
I felt safe and confident talking with the counsellor and the whole experience helped to create huge psychological shifts. Thank you.
I feel my life has completely opened up-I've probably never been happier. This is a wonderful service that you offered me & I'll never forget it.
At OTR I have been given a chance to talk about things that are immensely painful and difficult for me, and that has helped me as a whole person.
