The winter months have always seen a rise in referrals to our Counselling and Emotional Well-Being Team and this trend has continued this year with a steep increase of young people in need of support. We are currently working with over 45 young people on a one-to-one basis across the borough. The three most common reasons they are referred to us are: 

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Self-injury

Young people’s mental health continues to be one of the biggest issues this generation is facing and one-to-one counselling is a really effective way to help young people work through these challenges. As a team with believe strongly that all young people should feel hopeful about their future and have the tools to overcome any barriers they face.
