You are not alone; talk to someone.

In times of difficulty, one of the best ways to overcome a problem is to share it with someone else, a kind and caring voice. The bravest thing for some people to do is to admit that they have a problem. This takes a great deal of courage and strength.

Our team of specially trained and patient counsellors are willing to listen.

Sharing a problem is often the first step to recovery.

If you need someone to talk to, we listen. We will not judge or tell you what to do.
