“Relate gave me the encouragement to carry on even when I was at my lowest point. I couldn’t thank them more.”
Wez – Relate CYP counselling client,
I was referred to Relate’s Time for You counselling service when my parents split up. At the time I couldn’t concentrate and couldn’t talk to my friends in the same way that I used to.
Without the help that I was given then, I could not possibly be who I am today. Relate gave me the encouragement I needed to carry on when I was at my lowest point, and I couldn’t thank them more.
For the past two years I have been part of a focus group in which we have been working to let young people know that it is ok to go to counselling. A lot of young people believe that counselling is for crazy people which can be due to how television portrays counselling.
We help young people realize that counselling is actually for anyone that needs support with whatever they are going through.
