Counselling at Step by Step a young person’s time to be heard. Counselling is based on building a trusting relationship between the counsellor and young person. It can help to talk about experiences and worries and how to manage them in a helpful way. Our counsellors are trained to listen carefully and thoughtfully to problems without judgment. Counsellors do not give advice, but support young people to make positive decisions for themselves. Our counsellors are trained and experienced in working with many different issues including stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, bullying, bereavement, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, friendship / relationship issues, self-hard, eating disorders, feelings of not fitting in, exam worries, and socialisation.
Step by Step offer 6-8 free counselling sessions with a qualified counsellor who is trained to listen to them in confidence. Young people will also receive guidance for ongoing support should they require it.

It was nice to be able to talk to someone I didn’t really know, and talk about my worries without being judged.
