Counselling at Youthline offers a safe space for you to talk privately with someone who is skilled in listening about whatever might be troubling you.

Your counsellor will listen to you without making judgements and will help you to explore your personal thoughts, feelings and experiences.

You will not be pressured to talk about anything you do not want to. Many people are nervous at first in what is a new and different experience, but these feelings are quite natural. It can be hard to take that first step, but whatever your problem, however big or small, you will be made welcome here at Youthline and listened to with respect.

Seeing my Youthline counsellor helps me concentrate at school more knowing I have someone to talk to.
