Many different services provide counselling for their individual specialist area e.g. bereavement counselling, drug and alcohol counselling etc and detailed information can usually be found within those services areas individual pages.
However links to a number of organisations and charity's providing counselling can be found in the offsite links section on the right e.g. The child bereavement charity, Early Break - for young people who have issues regarding drugs and alcohol.
If you want to talk to someone you can talk to Samaritans at any time of the day or night.
Common reasons to call Samaritans are:
Relationship and family problems
Loss, including loss of a job, a friend or a family member through bereavement
Job-related stress or overwork
College or study related stress
Body image issues
Samaritans volunteers listen in confidence to anyone in any type of emotional distress, without judging or telling people what to do. Volunteers offer support by responding to phone calls, emails and letters. Alternatively, you can often drop in to a branch to have a face to face meeting.
Samaritans doesn't offer advice, but by encouraging people who contact us to talk about their feelings we are able to help them explore all the options they have. Samaritans believes that given the time and space to work problems or difficulties through in confidence, people can find an inner strength and perspective which lets them find their own way forward.
