Whatever you are facing, whatever you are worried about, we are here to help.

No problem or issue is too big or small, talking about how you’re feeling with a counsellor can help.

If you are a young person aged 8 to 21, click on the button below and fill out your details to request support. A member of our team will then text or email you to arrange a time to talk. We aim to make contact with you within 48 hours but please note that our team do not work weekends. So, if you fill out the form on a Friday evening, we’ll be in touch on the Monday.

If you have accessed Stop.Breathe.Think in the past, please contact admin@stopbreathethink.org.uk to see if you are eligible for further support.

I want to talk

Having someone to talk to about how awful I have been feeling really helped, especially as I felt like I didn't have anyone else I could talk to. There was no judgement and my counsellor was empathetic, which is important to me and helped me to open up.”

How does the counselling work and who will I be talking to?

Once you fill out the form, a member of our team will be in touch within 48 hours. Please note that our team do not work weekends, so if you fill out the form on a Friday evening, we’ll be in touch on Monday.

The first step is to have a chat so that we can find out a little more about you and to talk you through the process. We can chat Monday – Thursday 9am – 7pm and on Fridays 9am – 5pm.

If you are happy to start counselling, you will be allocated 6  sessions to begin with. They will last 50 minutes and you will speak to the same counsellor every week. All sessions take place virtually either on the phone, text or via videocall.

If you are struggling in between your counselling sessions, you can access our  ‘wellbeing drop in’ sessions, which are available Monday – Thursday 9am-7pm or on Fridays 9am-5pm. These are short 30 minute calls with the on call counsellor.

Our counsellors join us through a professional counselling service called JHD Counselling Services. If you would like to find out more about our counsellors, click below.
