Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.

BeMe is our counselling service for children and young people, aged 8 - 16.

Counselling is a skilled way of helping children and young people with personal and developmental issues and difficulties. Through play therapy, talking or working with art and other creative materials, counselling gives individuals an opportunity to explore and discover ways to live in a more satisfying and resourceful way. It offers the young person the opportunity to increase self-awareness and develop personal resources and understanding of their own problems as well as cultivating strategies to cope with change.

BeMe Counselling offers:

- A space to be yourself
- A space to think
- A space to talk through what is going on for you
- A space to make sense of things that are troubling you
- A space to explore and express your feelings and thoughts
- A space to discover choices and options
- A space to become who you can be

Useful to know

Who? Anyone age 8 - 16 who wants to be listened to. You can contact us yourself (we like to have your parent or guardian’s permission as well). Or, someone else can contact us on your behalf. Examples would be teachers, doctors, parents, family members, social workers.

Why? It’s good to talk and get things sorted.
