Online Service

As well as our counsellors that provide face to face counselling, TalkingZone Online is an additional place which is safe and private where young people can talk to a counsellor via text chat or find help about some of the things that may be worrying them. TalkingZone offers the online counselling service for young people aged between 11-17 years.

Online Counsellors are available each Thursday between 6pm-8pm.
