How can counselling help me?

Counselling is about understanding choice and change.

The counsellor listens without judging, taking sides or giving advice.

A YICU counsellor may help the young person explore their own thoughts and feelings to enable them to make their own decisions.

The service is confidential. No one outside YICU will be told about anything the young person says to the counsellor without their agreement, unless the counsellor is concerned about the young person’s safety or the safety of others.
