What is counselling and emotional wellbeing support?

Counselling and emotional wellbeing support provides an opportunity to talk about problems and feelings in a safe, confidential environment. It can help with:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • self-harm
  • eating disorders
  • bereavement
  • abuse
  • bullying
  • low self-esteem
  • relationship problems

Our Counsellors and Therapeutic Intervention Practitioners are trained to listen with empathy, to help clients deal with negative thoughts and feelings and to provide guidance, enabling them to resolve problems and make positive changes. A range of approaches may be used to support clients, including person centred counselling, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).


At first I was a bit worried that it was going to bad or they were going to be judgemental but they were the opposite and they were really supportive, I would definitely recommend youth works to a friend because I felt very warm, comfortable and supported here.

My counsellor was so helpful and made me feel so safe in his room, everyone deserves his services, he managed to make me feel 10 times better in the short time I had him, thank you!
