At times life can be difficult and it can be hard to manage on your own. When this happens, you can feel lots of different things - sad, scared, hopeless or angry. Often we keep all our feelings and thoughts inside ourselves and this can make things worse. We think that it is okay to ask for help at a time like this and that with some support, you might be able to find your own answers.
Counselling is a confidential space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings or experiences over a period of time with the support of a trained listener. It is a friendly and non-judgemental space in which you get to know and understand yourself better and make changes in your life.
Our Croydon counselling service is a free self-referral service for young people aged 14-25 who live, work or study in Croydon.
The counselling we offer adheres to a Humanistic model, and includes Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural, Psychodynamic, Existential and other humanistic approaches. This is explained in detail here.
We aim to make you feel welcome and create a safe space for you to talk about any difficulties you are experiencing. You can contact us if you’re not happy with the service, have any questions or want to give any other feedback. Please see below for full information about our counselling service.
