We know that bullying behaviour is challenging for many young people right now and we want to make sure you get the right support to overcome what you are going through. Talking to a Counsellor can help. Counselling gives you a safe place to be heard and it is completely confidential. Counsellors do not give advice but do support you to make positive decisions for yourself.
Through our mentoring service, our Head of Counselling and Mentoring, Amie has helped and supported many people from different walks of life who have been impacted by bullying behaviour in some way. She is a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor, experienced in working with adults and young people. The person-centred approach is at the core of her work, but integrated with key concepts from other theories and approaches where she feels it would be beneficial. Her aim is to create a safe space for you to explore the bullying behaviour you have experienced while strengthening your self-confidence and self-belief.
In January 2022, we launched Talk 2 Us – our Counselling Service for those affected by bullying behaviour who need a safe space to talk.
We are currently able to offer people (over the age of 9 years) up to 6, funded, 50 minute counselling sessions. The sessions take place virtually – either over the telephone or via video call. We know that Virtual Counselling doesn’t work for everyone, but for some people, it can be a good way of trying it out and getting some short-term, much needed support.
If you would like to be referred for our Talk 2 Us Service, or if you’re a parent, youth worker, social worker, teacher who would like to refer a young person for counselling, please complete the form below and one of our team will be in touch to arrange the sessions with you. Talk 2 Us is for people over the age of 9 years.
Who will be providing the counselling sessions??
Currently, our counselling sessions are delivered by Amie Fey, a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor.
Can you tell me more about the counselling support that will be provided?
We offer people up to 6, funded, 50 minute counselling sessions. If the counsellor feels that they might need more, they will discuss this with them or a parent/guardian. All sessions take place virtually (phone or videocall).
For many people, 6 counselling sessions isn’t enough, so we are working hard to build partnerships with organisations who can help us fund additional sessions for those who need it.
Is there an exclusion criteria?
We can only support people who are over the age of 9 years.
