It helps to talk: find out about how you can access counselling

Counselling is a safe space to talk about your feelings and any problems in your life. It can also help to build your confidence and self-esteem.

If you’re at secondary school or aged 10 or over at primary or special school, you can ask your school about accessing counselling services through your school.

 School counselling is just one of a range of services that schools may have in place to support your health, emotional and social needs. Speak to your school about the option that would be best for you.
