Our one to one support gives young people the chance to understand personal and social issues in depth and to develop the emotional skills and confidence to overcome personal challenges, transitions and difficulties.
We know that dealing with things can be challenging sometimes. Even everyday things like hanging out with friends or doing schoolwork can seem difficult. Our staff are here to listen to any problems that you have and to work with you to overcome them.
