A Relate Young Persons’ Counsellor can provide an initial meeting to assess the problems. You can call to make an appointment or your parents or an adult you trust can phone for you.

The counsellor won’t tell you what to do or judge you in any way – they will help you to unravel problems and difficulties.

Relateen (young people's counselling) is for any young person who is having problems. With more and more young people coming to Relate with issues as far apart as depression and mental health problems to difficulties with their parents or people at school, coming to see a Relate counsellor helps because they are independent from school and home life.

You can expect to be helped by a supportive and non-judgmental counsellor. You can be referred by a teacher, social worker, doctor or you can ask to see a counsellor yourself.  What you say is confidential, unless the counsellor is worried for your safety.

Many of our young clients tell us that they feel happier after they see a Relate counsellor and are better able to deal with their problems. In some cases, the Relate counsellor helped them to concentrate better on their school-work, or get on better with their friends, family and peers.

Just call us on 01962 861336 or 023 8022 9761 or email appointments.swhiow@relate.org.uk to book an appointment or to find out more.
