Counselling with Heads Together

Heads_Together_WordingHeads Together is a free and confidential counselling service for young people aged 14 to 24.

Young people come to us for a wide variety of reasons, typical issues include family breakdown, sexual, physical or mental abuse, self-harm, bullying and young parenting issues.

"Counselling helped me deal with issues with my dad. I realised it wasn’t all my fault. Without it I think I might have just left, and who knows where I would have ended up." James.

How often?
We offer weekly counselling sessions, which last for around 50 minutes. The length of time each person attends depends on the complexity of their issues and their own wishes. We mainly offer the opportunity to attend for 12 weekly sessions, although some young people may find that fewer sessions are needed. On some occasions, we are able to offer longer term support of up to one year.

We hold counselling sessions based in various locations across Mid and East Surrey in a range of schools and several of our Youth Centres and YMCA facilities:
