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 Merton counselling service is a free service for young people aged 11-18 in Merton.
If you are aged 14-18 you can self-refer to our service by calling or emailing us.
If you are aged 11-13, then you will need to see someone like your GP, teacher or social worker, and ask them to make a referral to us via the Merton CAMHS Single Point of Access.
