Information for young people 10-18

At times we all feel worried or have problems that are hard to talk about, especially with people who are close to us.  You may worry about what they will think or say, whether they will understand what you are saying or how you are feeling.  At times like this counselling may help.

Counsellors are trained and qualified professionals who will listen to you, and give you time to talk.  They won’t make judgements about you but will help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings so that you can make decisions about what to do next, overcome difficulties and get on with life.

You can talk about anything you want.  Things people talk to counsellors about include, depression, anxiety, anger, family and relationship problems, eating difficulties and self-image, self-harm, substance misuse, bullying, exam worries, anything that is worrying you.

Counselling appointments can be arranged in a variety of places, sometimes in school or college, at your GP surgery or at our offices in Hereford.

If you would like to see a counsellor, ask your GP or school nurse to refer you to us.  If you are another professional please refer through the appropriate contact or ring The CLD Trust to ask how to refer.

If you are a parent requesting a paid service please contact us on 01432 269245 or e-mail for a self-referral form.
