Counselling

We offer both free and charged personalised therapeutic counselling for adults and for children and young people aged 9 upwards where issues relating to, sexualised behaviours, sexual health, HIV, sexual relationships, sexual trauma, gender identity and sexual orientation is affecting their mental health and wellbeing.

Our counsellors are registered with a professional body and are Level 4 or above qualified, or working towards this if they are a volunteer.
