What is Counselling?
The agency has a team of professional counsellors who volunteer their services during normal opening hours and 3 evenings a week. The counselling service is completely free and confidential. If you have any concerns or difficulties in your life, feel confused or no one you can to talk to YES would like to be there for you. We are here to listen and help you make sense of your feelings. Counselling can help you to take decisions and make changes to your life.
Counselling provides a place where you will be listened to and taken seriously. You will not be judged, but respected and encouraged. You will meet a counsellor for a first assessment appointment, and if further sessions are required, additionally weekly appointments will be arranged. Counselling sessions are 50 minutes long and take place at the same time every week. Daytime and evening appointments are available.
All our staff have enhanced Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) checks and are carefully selected and trained to work with young people. Counsellors are fully qualified, or in the final stages of training. Their case loads are carefully monitored by a supervisor, and all abide by The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). YES also works in close partnership with various other organisations, including - County Council, and local schools where many of our counsellors work on behalf of YES.

We also have an email counselling service, where a trained counsellor will write back to you or find us on Facebook.
