The Listening space
We hope you will find the following answers helpful, but if you do have more questions please do contact us.
What happens in counselling?
Counselling gives you the opportunity to talk in private about anything that's worrying you. The counsellor will not take sides or tell you what to do or how to live your life, but they will help you to look at choices and encourage you to make your own decisions.
Who is the Listening Space for?
The Listening Space is for any young person aged between 12 and 18 years of age who would like to explore issues and experiences that they are finding difficult in their lives, for example, anxiety, self-esteem, loss, faith, relationships, family breakdown, within a safe, supportive and caring environment.
How do I get to see a counsellor?
You can see a counsellor by talking to a church or youth leader, asking your parent or guardian to arrange an appointment, or speaking to us at a Big House camp or by phoning our office.
Is counselling confidential?
What you say in counselling is not repeated to others without your permission, unless there are very serious concerns about your safety or another person's safety.
Who are the counsellors?
We are a team of professionally qualified and experienced counsellors who work in accordance with British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and Association of Christian Counsellors guidelines.
Will my counsellor pray with me?
If you would like them to, yes.
