The TalkingZone community counselling service is specifically designed for those children and young people who are not in mainstream education. For example, children educated at home, young people attending colleges or private schools. It's also for those young people up to their 19th birthday who are not in education or training but live in the Newport area and would like to access counselling. The counselling sessions take place within our purpose built suite of counselling rooms at the Helen Kegie Centre for Therapies which is situated within the University of South Wales Newport Campus.
Types of problems that counselling can be used for may include:
Everything you say to the counsellor is private unless you say something that means you or another young person are being seriously harmed in some way or at risk of serious harm.
Information supplied to the service is confidential unless something is disclosed that indicates a young person is being seriously harmed or is at risk of serious harm. In this case we may pass on the information to appropriate external services to support the young person.
