Winchester Youth Counselling – our story
Our project opened its doors in 2003 to provide a safe therapeutic space for young people aged 11- 25 who live in the district of Winchester.
Young people’s emotional well-being is important to us and therapy can help them to understand their thoughts, feelings and emotions in more depth.
Our aim is to help young people tell their story to a trained professional who can help them reflect, recover and learn more about themselves.
Therapy is a process which can help young people recognise what needs to change in order to enjoy life more.
We are a registered charity and member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
We provide a free confidential counselling service, using professionally trained staff in an open atmosphere of trust and honesty, providing a safe environment and relationship in which young people are valued.
We offer short-term or longer-term counselling, advice, support and help to parents, carers, relatives and professionals.
We also offer one to one De-stress, Relax & Chill sessions – a confidential service with a professionally trained therapist offering individual relaxation and wellbeing sessions to help young people manage their energy.
We believe that everyone should be treated equally, regardless of their religion, beliefs, age, gender, race, disability or sexual orientation. You can expect to be treated with respect, courtesy and consideration at all times by our staff and we expect you to treat our staff in the same way.
