At The Counselling Foundation, we provide a free service for those who are 16 – 17 years old through the NHS with a set amount of sessions.
We also have a pay what you can afford service for those who are 18 – 25 via our open-ended work.
For those younger, counselling is sometimes available in schools and may also be provided in youth clubs and advice centres for young people. Your GP could also refer your child to the Hertfordshire Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) or Bedfordshire CAMHS option, although not all CAMHS offer counselling services.
Our youth counselling is for any young person who is experiencing problems. A time when choices need to be made at school for your future, during exams and revision, moving to university, the transition between education to work, unemployment and entering new relationships can be daunting. If you are aged 16 and above and feel that counselling may help you, then please get in touch. We are here to help you work through every stage you may go through as a young adult and there after.
