What We Do

Talk 2 Us

One in four people experience a mental health problem.  Recent research has shown that mental health issues in young people has increased by 40%. Whilst not all are down to bullying behaviour, simply having a mental health problem can lead to a person being bullied.

As we come to better understand bullying behaviour, the more concerned health professionals are becoming over the potentially damaging and long-lasting impact that it has on the mental health of those who experience it.

Bullying behaviour can devastate a person’s life. They can lose all faith in their ability,  feel ill and depressed  and find it hard to feel motivated to work or learn.

We know that bullying behaviour is challenging for many young people right now and we want to make sure the right support to help them overcome what they are going through is available. Talking to a Counsellor can help. Counselling provides a safe place to be heard and it is completely confidential. Counsellors do not give advice but do guide and support to enable positive decisions to be made.

 

 

We are currently able to offer people in the UK (over the age of 9 years) 6, funded, 50 minute counselling sessions – more if needed. 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.

You can be referred by a teacher, social worker, or you can ask to see a counsellor yourself by completing the form below. You can expect to be helped by a supportive and non-judgmental counsellor. What you say is confidential unless the counsellor is worried about your safety.  If your counsellor is concerned that you’re at serious risk of harming yourself or someone else, they may need to inform your GP, a healthcare professional or someone else. They should tell you first if they’re going to do this. You can read our Privacy Policy here

If you would like to be referred for our Talk2Us 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. Talk2Us is for those in the UK over the age of 9 years.

    **If referring a young person, please make sure that the person you are referring is 21 years or younger and that you have their consent before submitting your details.

 

We also provide an e-Mentoring service.  This is an email support service for those who would prefer to communicate in this way.

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 to explore the bullying behaviour that has been experienced while strengthening self-confidence and self-belief.

Q&As

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 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.
