One-to-one support

Want to talk to someone?

1-to-1 with one of our Youth Workers   

You can talk to them about anything that’s bothering you, no matter how stupid, embarrassing or serious you might think it is. They can work with you to decide the best way forward, by helping you to make your own informed choices and decisions. They will never tell you what you should do or judge you.

They might suggest you meet with them a few more times, or talk to you about joining our mentoring programme or explain how counselling might help you.


We offer mentoring to those that need extra 1 to 1 support or guidance. Together with the Family and young person we develop a mentoring support plan that is typically reviewed every 3 months. This is not counselling or clinical therapy. We work with a number of different services and signpost appropriately dependant on need. Quite often we find our mentoring can be the stop gap support in place before counselling or additional services can be sought. Through mentoring we aim to encourage young people to determine their own goals and walk alongside them as they achieve them.


A counsellor can help you overcome negative or difficult thoughts, feelings, experiences and behaviours. Counsellors don’t tell you what to do; they help you identify your problems, understand them, the effect they have on you and others around you, and help you learn how to deal with them and find alternative ways to cope and overcome them so you can make positive changes and choices to your life going forward. We can direct you to a qualified counsellor.
